Man accused of shooting a Putnam County Deputy alludes police
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Schools in Cumberland County, Kentucky, have been canceled as police continue a massive manhunt for a man authorities say shot a Tennessee deputy.
Police raided a home in Burkesville, Kentucky, overnight looking Floyd Ray Cook, but the shooting suspect wasn’t there.
Putnam County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Beth Nelson says a deputy pulled Cook over near Allgood, Tennessee, on Saturday. When he asked Cook to show his hands, the suspect shot him. Nelson says the deputy was wearing a bulletproof vest, which saved his life.
Gregory say Kentucky troopers later found a vehicle near Burksville, Kentucky, matching the description in the Tennessee shooting and pulled it over. A man inside shot at troopers, but no one was injured.
