Both Sheriff's Dept. and Paducah Poice Dept. have ride along programs. The person who rides along has to sign a waiver and it is part of riding along that a law officer may have to respond to a dangerous call. The Paducah Police Dept. has a Citizen's Police Academy and one of the things on it is that you have to ride along with a law agency.

If someone points a gun at you, a taser is not a very good option.

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky.— Kentucky State Police are investigating a shooting involving a McCracken County Sheriff's deputy.

According to Kentucky State Police, a health care provider notified the McCracken County Sheriff's department early Saturday of a situation involving a potential suicide.



Sheriff's deputy Jared Rivera was dispatched to the home on Oriole Lane. Rivera, who had a civilian in the vehicle at the time, went to the door of the home but nobody answered.



According to investigators, the civilian in the Rivera's vehicle saw someone come to the front of the house and show a gun. The civilian notified Rivera who called for back up.



The deputy then got into his vehicle and started backing up. The homeowner started coming down the driveway with a sword and a gun and pointed the gun at Rivera.



According to KSP, Rivera then shot the man. The suspect is listed in serious condition at a local hospital.



The suspect is charged with 3rd degree assault on an officer.

The shooter pointed the gun at the deputy. I think you really need to practice your reading comprehension skills. It is in the article that someone else posted that the shooter pointed gun at deputy so therefore deputy is within his or her power to shoot the person.

Maybe I need to come down and help this poor victim out. He was just trying to show off his new toys that he got. I wanted to the video. If the glove don't fit you must acquit

I astounded at the stupidity of these comments...small minds...small....attitudes, my goodness, heaven help anyone of you who may have a friend or loved on in distress, the fella shot needed help...plain and simple, not to be shot. I understand that law enforcement have the right to protect themselves as well. but shot to disarm, disable, not to kill...sort of an act first try to explain later mentality...no justification in over kill...and if you are threatened by a man in a driveway with a sword and you are in your car, or near it, you have no business protecting the community you live in and work for...really??!! perhaps you folks need to discuss some of the other "important" discussions on here such a boobs, fake or real, pot heads, gays, geez...sad state of affairs for you and your community if that is news worthy. Idiots.
