Man Fires Shot At Officer; Manhunt Underway

A Paris Police officer's close call with an armed man overnight sparks a massive manhunt in Bourbon County.

The officer says the man fired at least one shot toward the officer, just off Second Street.

Paris Police called out Lexington Police's helicopter, as well as K-9 units to search a field and creek bed behind Highland Lane and Kelly Street.

Paris Police are saying the suspect matches the description of William Greer, a man accused of murdering his girlfriend in Texas. Greer was recently featured on "America's Most Wanted."

Last week, he was found living in Georgetown, but slipped away before being captured by police.

    I agree with the Hardee's comment or better yet try the local hospital where every one is trying to lay everyone

    I know the Chief of Paris Police personally, I know many of the other Officers and Dispatchers. These heroic men and women serve the citizens of Paris daily and all others who might vist there. The Department has come a long way with many issues. So many small town department struggle with officers leaving after training to larger departments offering more pay and benefits. May this blog, our actions as citizens and visitors of this fair city encourage our Officers and Dsipatchers to stay! Each day their lives are rsiked for us, each day they endure stress many never know on a job and each day they are looking out for us all , expected to be social workers, counselors and protectors! God Bless them ALL!!!!!

    I think the comment about how dangerous Paris is becoming is a little vague. If the man that the PPD is looking for is indeed the suspect from Texas, then we need to start in Texas first, right???? And what about Georgetown, he has supposedly spent about 6 weeks there, right???? Give us a break!! Paris is my hometown, always has been, always will be. Law enforcement is not an easy job, maybe we should all try it sometime. Three cheers for Paris!!

    None, it's "our" not "are". Paris is doing just fine but of course we have our issues just like any other city.

    Well Brandon. If you would get your head where it needs to be and out of where it is, then you would know that there was a bad wreck on main street and thats why the police was standing there. They looked for the subject all night and no sign of him. There are other things to do besides concentrating on one thing. By the way, I hear they are accepting applications at the P.D. so since your such an awesome individual go put one in, im so sure they can use your help.

    Paris might seem like it's getting all negative attention, but truth is every town has it's spurt of crazy crimes and incidents. It just seems that the criminals are choosing Paris at this time, but you know what the Paris Police Department works 24/7 to ensure the safety of the residents and make sure these criminals are caught. Yes, Paris might be the current choice for committing their crimes but they certainly won't get anyway it. So I would stop complaining about stupid that is going to happen anyway and be thankful that you have the type of Police Daprtment you do.

    It appears to me that Paris has become a very dangerous place to live,from the top officials down.
