Kentucky sheriff’s deputy wounded, alleged gunman killed

The Kentucky State Police says a shooting in Madison County that left a sheriff’s deputy wounded and an alleged gunman dead occurred when the deputy tried to stop a truck on a roadway near Berea.
    
Police said in a news release that 51-year-old Daniel Pigg of Berea pulled into a driveway Wednesday afternoon and walked toward a house. Police say Pigg ignored Deputy Kevin Crutcher’s verbal commands, pulled out a handgun and began shooting toward the deputy. The release said Crutcher was injured and returned gunfire, fatally striking Pigg.
    
Pigg was pronounced dead at the scene. Crutcher, a nine-year veteran of the sheriff’s department, was treated for a gunshot wound to the abdomen and released from the University of Kentucky Hospital.
