OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTING
Deputy fatally shoots 19-year-old female driver in Boone County after party

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 9:34 AM EDT
BURLINGTON, Ky.


Sheriff's officials say a deputy fatally shot a motorist after she struck him with her car as she left a party in Boone County.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Tyler Brockman ordered 19-year-old Samantha Ramsey to stop her car as she was leaving a field party early Saturday.

The sheriff's office reports that Ramsey accelerated instead, hitting Brockman and causing him to land on the car's hood. Brockman fired four shots through the windshield, striking Ramsey.

Ramsey was taken to Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Florence, where she died. Brockman was treated for a leg injury at another hospital.

Officials say Ramsey, of Covington, had no prior record with the sheriff's office.

Sheriff Michael A. Helmig ordered an investigation into the shooting and placed Brockman on administrative leave.
