Man shot and killed by sheriff's deputy

A man has been shot and killed after a chase involving a southern Kentucky sheriff's department.

Laurel County Sheriff's deputies were called to a rural area around London last night, that's where the chase started.

They won't comment on why they chased 35-year old James Goforth or how the chase ended.

We do know a deputy shot and killed Goforth after the chase.

That deputy, Richard Sapcupp, has been a deputy for several years.

London Police are investigating what lead to the shooting.
