ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. — Kentucky State Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a Tennessee man on Christmas by two police officers in Hardin County.

According to police, 39-year-old Thomas Everett, of Elizabethton, Tenn., was shot after he brandished what officers believed was a pistol at two Radcliff police officers.

Police started pursuing Everett after getting a report that he failed to pay a bar bill. Police said he crashed his car in Vine Grove and stole a police cruiser, then ran over an officer.

Police followed him to John Hardin High School and as officers approached the vehicle, police said he appeared to have a pistol. He was shot multiple times by the officers and pronounced dead by the Hardin County Coroner.

    Best way to handle any pursuit where the offender uses the vehicle as a weapon.

    Good! Serves the POS right for stealing a patrol car and especially for running over a cop and pointing a gun at them. Justified, case closed.
