LONDON, Ky. (AP) - Police in eastern Kentucky say a man with a gun fired at two officers after threatening to kill himself and anyone who tried to stop him

A release from the Laurel Sheriff’s Office says 45-year-old Terry Collier ran from his home Thursday night when officers arrived. He fired two shots at the sheriff’s deputies, and later put the gun down but continued to fight the officers until he was subdued.

Police say Collier had sent an electronic message to another person saying “he was going out in a blaze of glory.”

Sheriff John Root says Collier is charged with attempted murder of a police officer, wanton endangerment, fleeing police and resisting arrest.

The two deputies were not hurt during the arrest. Collier was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Center.
