Glendale, KY - (Fri 9 Feb 2018) - The Kentucky State Police Critical Incident Response Team is investigating an Officer-involved shooting incident that occurred yesterday evening, in Glendale, KY.

The Deputy located the vehicle traveling on KY 222. That particular vehicle then turned off of KY 222 and onto Bacon Creek Road, with the Hardin Co.
