911 calls give a new picture of Knox County shootout

KNOX Co., Ky. (WYMT) - The investigation continues for a shooting in Knox County that left one man dead and another injured.

The 911 calls gave us a new picture of what happened during that shootout.

Witnesses said on the second of September 44-year-old Jeffery Frump shot Sheriff Deputy Brian Hensley.

"Somebody's going to die tonight and it's not going to be me."

Hazel Hibbard, the girlfriend of Jeffery Frump, said this is what he told her.

After Frump locked her out of their home in the Gray community Hibbard called the police.

"My old man is drunk," said Hibbard. "He's busted holes already in my wall and he just busted the glass through the front door. He's acting crazy as a lunatic."

Hensley responded to the domestic complaint a little before midnight.

Witnesses said Hensley knocked down the door and the suspect opened fire.

Hibbard dialed 911 again.

"Okay he shot one of your cops and your cop is laying in my front yard," said Hibbard. "He told me to dial 911 and he said to send an ambulance. Hurry."

Witnesses said Frump shot Hensley in the leg.

State police say Frump went on the porch and pointed the gun at Hensley.

Officials said Hensley returned fire and killed Frump.

Police say Frump's body was taken to Frankfort for an autopsy.

Deputy Hensley was released from the University of Kentucky Hospital on Tuesday morning.
