Authorities respond to reports of officer-involved shooting in Daviess County

Authorities were at the scene of an deputy-involved shooting in Daviess County, Kentucky on Friday morning.

The Daviess County Sheriff's Office says authorities were called to the 9000 block of US 60 West around 10:45 a.m. Friday after a person was reportedly running down the middle the road with a hammer, screaming and breaking several windows.

After that, the sheriff's office says someone else called 911 and said that the suspect, 39-year-old Gregory Embry, had forced his way into a home.

The sheriff's office says a deputy found Embry inside the house, leading to the shooting.

Embry was sent to Owensboro Health and is listed in critical condition. 

Authorities say the deputy who was involved in the incident is uninjured.

According to KSP, criminal charges are pending.
