‘He was there to kill us’

Sheriff’s deputies came under fire this afternoon in western Anderson County before shooting and killing a suspect who had reportedly fired hundreds of rounds of ammunition into a neighbor’s house.

The shootout happened at the home of Marty and Nicole Hagan, who live Redwing Drive in the Mallard Cove area, a private community off Fairmont Road.

Two deputies responded but were uninjured. A spokesman for the Kentucky State Police said the deputies came under fire when they arrived, noting that their police cruiser was hit a number of times.
