BANK SHOOTING
State police: Armed man enters Princeton bank, killed after exchanging fire with police chief

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 11, 2014 5:06 PM EDT
PRINCETON, Ky.


Authorities say a police chief visiting a western Kentucky bank shot and killed an armed man who entered the bank wearing a stocking over his head.

Kentucky State Police say Princeton Police Chief Don Weedman ordered the man to put down his gun, but instead the man fired at Weedman. Weedman returned fire and struck 67-year-old James E. Hamm, fatally injuring him.

State Police say Hamm entered the Planters Bank in Princeton shortly after it opened at 8:30 a.m. Friday. There were about five people in the bank, mostly employees, and no one else was hurt.

State Police Trooper Stu Recke says Weedman "just happened to be there" when Hamm entered, carrying the gun and a tool bag.

Recke says the same bank was robbed Wednesday.
