Burglary suspect dies after firing at police

RADCLIFF, Ky. (AP) - Police have found a central Kentucky man dead after he fired at officers.

Kentucky State Police are investigating the incident that happened Wednesday night at a Radcliff apartment building. Media reported that Radcliff officers went to interview the man about a burglary at the apartment complex where he lived and the situation quickly escalated.

Officers said the man appeared to be willing to go with officers, so they allowed his request to get shoes from his bedroom. However, police say that's when he retrieved a gun and began firing at officers.

The officers say they returned fire and retreated from the apartment to wait for backup and evacuate other residents.
