SOMERSET, Ky. - A woman has died in southeastern Kentucky and a man in the home has been shot after a standoff with police.
Kentucky State Police say 44-year-old Mary Amanda Hislope of Somerset was pronounced dead at the scene west of Somerset in the Nancy community Thursday morning.
Police say officers saw a woman come to the door, then saw a man pull her back inside and heard a possible gunshot.
Police say the man came out of the house armed and after a short standoff pointed his weapon at officers, resulting in the man being shot in the torso.
Police say 52-year-old Timmy K. Hislope of Nancy was flown to University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, but a spokeswoman said there was no information about anyone by that name.
