WARSAW, Ky. — A person was airlifted to the hospital after Kentucky State Police troopers shot them following a confrontation Friday evening in Gallatin County.

According to a news release from police, troopers responded to Ambrose Road in Warsaw around 6:30 p.m. after a 911-caller said a person was in the front yard brandishing a gun.

When troopers arrived, the person had a gun and began shooting, according to the press release. The release did not specify whether the person fired any shots at troopers.

Police have not released the identify of the person shot.
