Ky. police officer shot during pursuit; 1 suspect arrested in TN
HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say a suspect shot and wounded a police officer during a robbery pursuit.
Hopkinsville Police Chief Clayton Sumner says Officer Jeremy Davidson was shot in the head and arm Monday.
Sumner says two vehicles were involved in a robbery at a Walmart and separate police chases ensued. Davidson had attempted a traffic stop on one of the vehicles when the suspect started shooting. Sumner says Davidson is in good condition at a hospital in Nashville.
In Middle Tennessee, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter that one of the suspects was later captured in Cunningham, Tennessee. The suspect’s identity wasn’t immediately released.
Last March, an off-duty Hopkinsville officer was fatally shot and a suspect was later killed by law enforcement officials in Tennessee.
