Troopers Cleared In Deadly Shooting

Two Kentucky State Police troopers have been cleared in the deadly shooting of a suspect in Whitley County.

The troopers, Gary Martin and Scott Bunch, shot and killed 29-year-old Jonathon Partin in July.

Investigators say Partin had set fire to a neighbor's home and made a threatening move toward the troopers with a pistol. The Corbin News Journal reports a grand jury found the troopers followed all proper procedures.
