Gov. Bevin awards Kentucky Colonel honor to LMPD officer shot in Russell neighborhood

Gov. Matt Bevin gave a show of force and support for an LMPD officer Tuesday night.

He awarded Officer Kyle Carroll the Kentucky Colonel honor for outstanding service to the community.

Carroll was shot in the chest earlier this month while chasing a suspect in the Russell neighborhood.

His bullet-proof vest stopped the bullet.

"Protecting those that protect us ... that's what we're going to do," Gov. Bevin said.

Suspect in cop shooting was in Fla. with sister

A gunman accused of shooting a Louisville Metro Police officer in the chest is now sitting in a Florida jail cell, nabbed Thursday afternoon at his sister's apartment.

Jacquan Lamont Crowley, 22, didn't put up a fight when surrounded by federal police and an investigator with the Volusia County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office just before 4 p.m., said Gary Davidson, a sheriff's office spokesman.

The U.S. Marshals Service had received a tip that the Louisville suspect could be in the area. They teamed with a sheriff's investigator to watch the sister's place at Sunrise Pointe Apartments in Port Orange until they spotted Crowley leaving and moved in to arrest him, Davidson said.

LMPD officer shot, suspect still on the run and considered armed and dangerous

Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad says Officer Kyle Carrol is believed to have been shot by 22-year-old Jacquan Crowley just after 11 p.m. Saturday on the 2300 block of Magazine Street.

Conrad says Officer Carrol was patrolling LMPD's first division when he saw Crowley, whom he recognized from an arrest he had made in the past.

"As he [Carrol] drove past the man, the man turned away, which the officer believed was an effort to hide his identity from the officer. That caused the officer to be concerned," Conrad said in a media briefing early Sunday morning.

McCubbin: Mayor attempting to justify restructuring with excuses, attacks on officers

Retired Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin posted this open letter to Mayor John Royalty and the community on social media early Thursday afternoon.

"Upon my announcement that I was retiring, many people made reference to and assumed that I was "leaving mad" due to the restructuring. I replied that no, that within itself did not make me angry. Though I was extremely disappointed in the politics involved, I have been in this game long enough to understand politics. I could see the writing on the wall and exactly what was happening. As I have stated, I did not support it nor agree with it, nor how it was done. What has angered me is the complete ignorance that has followed.

Retiring Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin posts lengthy Facebook message on last day of the job

It's the last day on the job for the Bardstown Police Chief.

Chief Rick McCubbin posted a long message on Facebook, saying, "When I came to Bardstown as an outside chief, I was accepted, by not only the department...but by this outstanding community."

When he announced his retirement, McCubbin said he did not agree with the mayor's decision to restructure the department.

He says today he'll make one last stop to pay respects to Officer Jason Ellis, whose murder remains unsolved. He'll go to the ramp where Ellis was killed and that will end McCubbin's tour of duty.
