Kentucky State Police say Dewayne Shipp has been charged with murder in the shooting death of Marion County Sheriff's Deputy Anthony Rakes, 31.
Investigators say Shipp shot Rakes during a traffic stop along US-68 early Wednesday morning. Officers arrested Shipp a short time later near Campbellsville.
Police say Shipp was taken to a Louisville hospital for treatment of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the leg. It remains unclear when he wounded himself.
An autopsy is planned for Rakes later Wednesday.
