Kentucky officer dead after late night call

Suspect in slaying of Kentucky police officer still on the run

"It's not an easy thing to sit here and do, especially seeing that procession", Kentucky State Police Public Affairs Officer Jody Sims said during a news conference Wednesday afternoon staffed by WSAZ-TV. Troopers released Hall's image Thursday morning, saying he was considered "armed and unsafe".

KSP said Hamilton and Trooper Matt Martin were patrolling the area when they saw a suspicious vehicle.

Two days after an eastern Kentucky police officer was killed on the job, some state lawmakers have voted to greatly increase benefits for his widow.

The $10 shirt features a Pikeville Police Department crest on the front and has "In loving memory of Scotty Hamilton" written on the back. Trooper Martin was able to locate Officer Hamilton, who had sustained a fatal gunshot wound.


Hamilton was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Kentucky police officer was fatally shot investigating an area well known for drug activity and the suspect is still on the loose.

Sinms said police arrested four people at the scene on charges unrelated to the shooting, and that police are searching for the alleged shooter. All profits will be donated to Officer Hamilton's wife and infant daughter. "Please keep his family in your prayers".

Hamilton's funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m., also at the East Kentucky Expo Center.
