The Trigg County Sheriff’s Department contacted the KSP and requested an investigation into a shooting incident that involved an unknown attacker and TCSD Deputy Jimmy Godair, according to a report by KSP Trooper Dean Patterson.
Godair had responded to a complaint of an all-terrain vehicle, or ATV traveling along the roadway, and when he responded to it, he saw an ATV with a camouflage coloring scheme in the road, said Patterson’s report.
The driver of the ATV fired two shots at the deputy, at which point Godair fired two shots at him, said Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark, who added that Godair wasn’t injured and the assailant fled into a wooded area on the ATV.
The attacker, Patterson said, hasn’t been caught, and is being sought by the KSP, who is conducting an investigation into the matter, bus added that he couldn’t provide much more information without jeopardizing the investigation.
“We’re hoping we can catch him in good time,” Patterson said.
Patterson urged anyone that has any information pertaining to the investigation to contact Kentucky State Police, Post One, at 1-800-222-5555.
