Deputy Sheriff Caleb Conley was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop near mile marker 127 on southbound I-75 in Georgetown, KY at around 4:45 pm.
The subject’s vehicle alerted a license plate reader showing a wanted person. As Deputy Conley approached the vehicle, he was shot. He was transported to the UK Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds an hour later.
The subject fled the scene but was arrested a short time later. He has been charged with the murder of a police officer, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, burglary, theft of an automobile, wanton endangerment, and fleeing/evading police.
Deputy Conley was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office for four years. He is survived by his wife and two children. Through the generosity of our donors, we had the honor of hand-delivering vital resources to help ease their financial hardship while mourning.
