A shooting in a Bowling Green, Kentucky neighborhood early Sunday morning left one man dead and a police officer on administrative leave.
Bowling Green officers responded to a 911 call in the 1100 block of Clay Street just before 2 a.m. and found 46 year-old Gregory Harrison of Brownsville intoxicated and shouting at officers.
“Mr. Harrison advised he was in a parking lot with a gun. According to the Bowling Green Police Department dispatch, Mr. Harrison refused to answer any of there questions, only stating they were refusing to help him,” Kentucky State Police Trooper Jonathan Biven told WBKO-TV in Bowling Green.
Police said Harrison ran to nearby railroad tracks, demanding for officers to shoot him.
“Mr. Harrison started to approach the officers and refused their verbal commands,” Biven continued.
As he became more aggressive, he was shot once by Bowling Green police officer Keith Casada Jr., a two year member of the force.
Harrison was taken to a local hospital where he died.
Officer Casada has been placed on routine administrative leave.
The shooting is being investigated by Kentucky State Police.
