GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say one man is dead following a shooting involving officers.

State police say in a news release that 34-year-old Juan J. Godines of Camden, South Carolina, died Monday near the Scott-Woodford County line.

Authorities say troopers tried to conduct a traffic stop on Godines, who had several warrants against him related to an earlier domestic incident.

Godines fled and was chased by officers. He later crashed into some trees and fled on foot into a wooded area, where police followed.

Authorities say that’s when they encountered the suspect, who was armed. Police say shots were fired and Godines was pronounced dead. The news release did not say if Godines was struck by gunfire from officers.

No officers were injured. The investigation is ongoing.
