A Knox County deputy was shot and a suspect is dead following a incident in the Gray community overnight.
According to Knox County Chief Deputy Derek Eubanks, Deputy Brian Hensley had responded to a report of a domestic disturbance on Orleans Court at Gray shortly before midnight.
“He was trying to talk the man out,” said Eubanks, “He (Hensley) heard gunshots. That’s when he was shot in the leg.”
Eubanks said Hensley then attempted to take cover. “He jumped over a banister rail into the yard to try and take cover. The man came outside to come after him again,” Eubanks said, adding that is when Hensley fatally shot the suspect, identified as 44-year-old Jeffrey Scott Frump.
Immediately after the shooting, Hensley radioed for medical help. EMS units staged nearby until Kentucky State Police arrived and secured the scene.
Hensley was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital. His condition was not known at the time of this post.
