One person was killed following an Officer involved shooting in Harlan Co. The shooting took place on Sunday afternoon in the Baxter community of Harlan Co. KSP Troopers from Post 10 were responding to a complaint at a home on Country Estates Road when a man identified as Bradley J. Grant, 36, ran from them. Officials said Grant ran inside the home away from Troopers, who then followed him inside. Grant allegedly confronted Troopers with a shotgun inside the home. Officials say he ignored several commands to put the weapon down, but those commands were ignored and Troopers were forced to fire at him. Grant was taken to Harlan ARH and pronounced deceaseed. No troopers were injured in the shooting. Both Troopers were placed on administrative leave, which is protocol during officer-involved shootings. KSP’s Critical Incident Response team is continuing to investigate.
