LaRue County Deputy Sheriff Kevin Bennett.
Lawsuit filed in shooting

The person who was shot by LaRue County Sheriff Deputy Kevin Bennett has now filed a federal suit against LaRue County, Bennett and other officers of the LaRue County Sheriff’s Office.

The lawsuit stems from an officer involved shooting on April 18, 2018 when Bennett attempted to make a traffic stop on Jason Shafer, 35, of Elizabethtown. According to reports from the Kentucky State Police, Bennett initiated the traffic stop because he recognized Shafer and knew he had warrants for his arrest.
