Pikeville Officer Scotty Hamilton Shot Dead in Line of Duty

Suspect in slaying of Kentucky police officer still on the run

The officer was killed Tuesday night while patrolling the Hurricane Creek area with a state trooper. After talking with the people inside the auto, they separated while canvassing the area. Martin tracked down Hamilton and realized he had been shot. Authorities say gunshots were fired a short time later near the residence, and Martin, who had become separated from Hamilton, found the officer with a fatal gunshot wound.

Officer Scotty Hamilton was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Pike County Coroner's Office.

The gunman managed to flee the scene, and authorities have not yet named a suspect.

Law enforcement agencies including the Kentucky State Police, the KSP Special Response Team and the Pikeville Police Department were "actively searching for possible suspects" as of Wednesday afternoon.

Hall was arrested without incident at 11 a.m. Thursday.
