Police officer, suspect shot and wounded in central Kentucky

(AP) — A central Kentucky mayor says a police officer was shot and wounded while trying to serve a search warrant in a robbery investigation and a suspect in the case was also shot.

Richmond Mayor Jim Barnes said two officers were trying to serve the warrant around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at a residence. He said when the officers opened the door, the person inside shot one officer in the head and the other officer shot the suspect.

Barnes said both the officer and the suspect were taken to University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.
