The Bardstown Police officer who was killed early Saturday morning on the Blue Grass Parkway exit ramp at Bloomfield Road (Ky. 55) was apparently ambushed by someone with a 12-gauge shotgun, according to Nelson County Coroner Field Houghlin.
Whoever shot Ellis fired on him from a hill above the Exit 34 ramp, Houghlin told the TV station. When a reporter asked if the shooting was an ambush, the coroner answered, "I would say that is definitely what happened."
