Louisville, KY – An investigation is underway following a deadly officer-involved shooting in Louisville. Louisville Metro Police Department officers were called to a domestic disturbance on Mary Dell Lane at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday. “Officers ended up in a confrontation with a man where shots were exchanged. The man who fired shots at officers is deceased,” LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said. Conrad said the suspect, Benjamin Kennedy, 35, died at the scene. “The last thing any officer wants to do is use force, particularly lethal force. We do what we can to de-escalate situations any time we get an opportunity and in this situation, again, it’s so early in the investigation I don’t know what officers had an opportunity to do or not do, but based on the info that has been shared with me they encountered deadly force and they responded to defend themselves,” Conrad added.
