Grief over a Kentucky officer’s death is giving way to rage and anxiety as police believe someone set up a trap just to kill their colleague or another driver.
Bardstown Police Officer Jason Ellis was driving home from work around 2 a.m. Saturday when he noticed some debris on the road, Kentucky State Police Trooper Norman Chaffins told CNN.
When Ellis got out of his car to remove the debris, he was shot multiple times.
“It was an obvious ambush,” Chaffins said. “He never used his service weapon. It was holstered.”
