LARUE COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – Numerous emergency agencies are responding to a shooting involving a LaRue County sheriff's deputy, according to Kentucky State Police.

A KSP dispatcher said an officer shot a suspect just before 10 p.m. Friday off State Route 1192 near the LaRue County community of Magnolia.

Kentucky State Police say a LaRue County Deputy was in pursuit of a reckless driver along 1192. The chase went on for about ten miles before police say the suspect whipped his car around and started towards the deputy.

Kentucky State Police say the deputy ordered the suspect out of the car, but when he started charging towards him in his car, that's when the deputy fired multiple rounds at the suspect.

Police say the suspect was hit at least once. He was taken to University Hospital and his injuries are unknown. The deputy was not hurt.

Kentucky State Police are investigating this case.
