Search widens for suspect in officer shooting

Police have widened the search for a man accused of shooting at law officers in two states, and are raising the possibility that he might now have a companion and a pickup truck.
    
Kentucky State Police said Tuesday that the investigation into Floyd Ray Cook’s whereabouts has turned up multiple leads that expanded the search statewide.
    
The 62-year-old Cook faces an attempted-murder charge in Tennessee for shooting and injuring an officer last Saturday. Authorities say he later fired at a state trooper in Kentucky. The trooper was not wounded.
    
Authorities say Cook might have access to a beige 2006 Ford Ranger with Kentucky license plates.
    
State police Trooper Billy Gregory says Cook might also now be accompanied by another man. He described them as possible "associates." Gregory says investigators are going through a list "people and places and things to check out."
