Shepherdsville police shoot man; state police investigating

Kentucky State Police in Elizabethtown are investigating after Shepherdsville officers shot a suspect Friday evening.

According to an account by state police, officers responded at about 5 p.m. to a complaint of a suicidal man armed with a gun and standing in a field. The officers tried negotiating with Christopher Lindsey, but after several minutes, Lindsey pointed his weapon at them. The officers fired, striking Lindsey in the abdomen.

He was transported to the University Of Louisville hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition Saturday.

Lindsey is charged with six counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer.

State police did not immediately release information about the race of the officers or the suspect, nor did they release the officers’ names.

The case is under investigation.
