Three Kentucky police officers were shot and killed after a 49-year-old man, who is in custody, allegedly gunned them down and wounded several others in a mass shooting at his Kentucky home.

Iran PressAmerica: The shooting unfolded in Floyd County at about 6:44 p.m. local time Thursday, Kentucky State Police said. Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear called it a “barricade situation.”

According to an arrest report, Lance Storz, who was armed with a rifle, fired multiple rounds at police officers around his home, killing three officers and a police K9.

Five other officers and an emergency management director were injured, the arrest report said.

The slain officers were identified by the sheriff’s office as Deputy William Petry and City Police Captain Ralph Frasure.

“Floyd County and our brave first responders suffered a tragic loss last night,” the governor tweeted Friday. “I want to ask all of Kentucky to join me in praying for this community. This is a tough morning for our commonwealth.”

Storz is in custody on multiple charges including murder of a police officer and attempted murder of a police officer. He entered a plea of not guilty and is being held on $10 million bond. Storz returns to court on July 11.
