Ky. police officer shot during pursuit; 1 suspect arrested

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say a suspect shot and wounded a police officer during a robbery pursuit.

Hopkinsville Police Chief Clayton Sumner says Officer Jeremy Davidson was shot in the head and arm Monday.

Sumner says two vehicles were involved in a robbery at a Walmart and separate police chases ensued. Davidson had attempted a traffic stop on one of the vehicles when the suspect started shooting. Sumner says Davidson is in good condition at a hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.

In Tennessee, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says in a news release one of the suspects was later captured in Cunningham, Tennessee. The statement says 28-year-old Keith Allen Kuzyk was arrested on a felony evading charge.

Last March, an off-duty Hopkinsville officer was fatally shot and a suspect was later killed by law enforcement officials in Tennessee.
