Man Dead After Officer Involved Shooting In Okolona

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- LMPD officers shoot and kill a man while investigating an assault Sunday night.

It happened in the 3200 block of Fern Valley Road when officers were called to a business on the report of an assault with shots fired.

While investigating the report, LMPD Chief Steve Conrad says a man came out of the building with a gun. The man disregarded officer’s orders to drop the gun and that’s when Conrad says they opened fire to protect themselves.

The man was taken to University Hospital where he later died.

Conrad says the department will release more information including body camera video sometime later Monday afternoon.
