Overview Help icon

An Elizabethtown Police Department officer shot Byron D. Herbert, 29, of Muldraugh, Ky. outside of a Kroger on Sunday evening. He later died at the hospital. Virgil Willoughby, a spokesman for the Elizabethtown Police Department, said an Elizabethtown officer responded a domestic dispute outside the store as he was headed to work. When the officer arrived, a woman reportedly told him that a man in a nearby pickup truck had a gun. As the officer approached the man and began talking, he saw the gun, Willoughby said. It is unclear if Herbert raised his gun or shot at the officer, but the officer opened fire, according to Willoughby.
