Man shot by deputies not man named in warrant

By news admin

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a man fatally shot by deputies was not the man named in a warrant being served but was wanted for bank robbery in Tennessee and Ohio.

The Jefferson County coroner's office says 53-year-old Albert William Keyes died of multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday in Louisville.

Deputies went to his home to serve a Trimble County warrant for flagrant nonsupport, but Jefferson County sheriff's department Lt. Col. Carl Yates says Keyes was not the person named in the warrant.

WAVE-TV says Keyes went to retrieve identification but slipped out the back door instead. Two other deputies who spotted him in a parking lot fired at him after Yates says Keyes exited his vehicle with a knife.

The Courier-Journal reported that the FBI in Memphis said Keyes is wanted for bank robberies in West Carrollton, Ohio, on Feb. 7 and in Dickson County, Tenn., on Feb. 26.
