Northern Kentucky man in jail after shooting incident involving sheriff's deputy


CRITTENDEN, Kentucky — Kentucky State Police say a northern Kentucky man who was shot by a sheriff's deputy is being held in jail after his release from a hospital.

Police told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1GyYve0 ) that 22-year-old Shane D. Propes of Crittenden is charged with attempted murder of a police officer and first-degree wanton endangerment.

Police said the Grant County deputy and a state trooper responded June 15 to a report of a suspicious person possibly carrying a gun, and the deputy located the man, who began to run and started shooting at the deputy.

Police said the deputy returned fire, and the man was hit. The deputy, who hasn't been identified, wasn't injured.

Propes is being held in the Grant County jail on $100,000 cash bond. Online jail records do not indicate whether Propes has a lawyer.
