RADCLIFF, KY (WAVE) – A burglary suspect who died during a standoff with Radcliff police officers Wednesday night shot and killed himself, according preliminary autopsy results.
Michael Strand, 47, was found dead inside an apartment at 630 Seminole Drive after an exchange of gunfire with Officer Terry Moore, a 2 1/2-year veteran of the Radcliff Police Department and a retired Kentucky State Police trooper. Sergeant Jeremy Davis, a 6 1/2-year veteran of the department, was struck in the foot by one of the rounds fired by Strand, but the bullet did not penetrate Davis's boot. Davis suffered minor injuries. Neither Officer Davis nor Sergeant Joe Gonzales, who was also on the scene, was injured.
