The News-Democrat & Leader has learned that there has been a shooting on North Main Street in Russellville and the road is currently closed to traffic as police conduct their investigation.

Three people have been shot, one fatally.

According to the Russellville Police Department, an officer was involved in the shooting. No police officers were hurt.

The case has been turned over to the Kentucky State Police for investigation, according to the RPD.

According to the Kentucky State Police, the preliminary investigation shows that a male had shot a female and then left the scene on foot. The female pulled across the street where she was treated and then transported to the Medical Center in Bowling Green for her injuries.

The male walked north on North Main Street where he encountered responding Russellville Police Department Officers which resulted in the male being shot and killed near the Super Wash near the intersection of Armory Drive.

A male subject that was inside Russellville Donuts across from the Super Wash was struck by gunfire and was flown to TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville for treatment.

No Russellville Police officers were injured during the incident.

No other details are available for release at this time.

“This is tragic,” said Logan County Sheriff Wallace Whittaker said. “I just talking about police officer shootings at Rotary on Thursday.”

At the request of the Russellville Police Department, Russellville city schools activated “soft” lock down procedures for approximately 30 minutes due to the recent shootings at the location in town, according to Russellville High School principal Kim McDaniel. A “soft” lock down means that normal classroom procedures continue but student movement and transitions are closely monitored. We have currently resumed normal activities and procedures on campus. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families which have been impacted by this incident.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
