A deadly shooting in Eastern Kentucky leaves one man dead and two state police troopers on administrative leave.
Officials say 63-year-old Charles Edward Sizemore pulled a gun on troopers Joel Abner and Randall Riley along Big Spring Branch Road in Knott County yesterday. The troopers shot him.
They were called to the home to check on Sizemore's sister, who was in his care.
Administrative leave is standard procedure for any trooper involved in a shooting.
Sizemore's body was sent to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
Troopers say his sister was taken to the hospital for an unrelated medical issue.
