Police: More than 1 may have had role in slaying
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky State Police spokesman says it appears more than one person was involved in the ambush slaying of a Bardstown police officer.
State police Master Trooper Norman Chaffins said Tuesday that based on circumstances, investigators believe more than one person had a hand in the slaying of Officer Jason Ellis. The 33-year-old K-9 officer was gunned down on May 25 after he got out of his cruiser to pick up tree limbs on a highway exit ramp.
Chaffins said police have interviewed a woman who drove around the trap before Ellis stopped.
He says police are following up on multiple tips but don’t have a suspect.
State police have set up a special email address for tips in the investigation.
