Kentucky State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting which left one person dead.

We're told the Greenville Police Department contacted Kentucky State Police for a barricaded person Friday evening.

We're told Greenville Police went into a home in the four-hundred block of James Street to serve a mental health warrant.

Police say a man shot at officers before barricading himself in his basement.

KSP says the man came out of his home with a rifle in what they say was a threatening manner.

Authorities say a trooper responded by firing his weapon hitting the man.

The Muhlenberg County coroner pronounced the man dead at the scene.

Police say no officers were injured during the incident.
