SHELBYVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that left an 18-year-old dead.  Shelby County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeff Ivers identified the victim as Trey Williams.

State police say neighbors saw a man walking outside the home in the 100 block of Clifton Court with a pipe and called 911.  When the officers arrived, state police say Williams then assaulted one of the officers with a piece of pipe.

State police say shots were fired, but at this time it's not clear how many or who fired the shots.  The person who owns the home tells WAVE 3 the teenager was her grandson, and he just graduated from Shelby County High School.

Two officers were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Shelbyville police chief Robert Schutte said the two officers involved will be placed on administrative leave, per policy. The Shelbyville Officers involved the police shooting are Officer Suzanne Marcum and Frank Willoughby. Officer Marcum has been employed by the Shelbyville Police Department for 17 years. Officer Willoughby has been employed by the Shelbyville Police Department for 6 years. 

WAVE 3 discovered Williams was recently booked into the Shelby County Detention Center for disorderly conduct.

Kentucky State Police have taken over the death investigation and officer-involved shooting.
