Deadly Shooting Involves Laurel County Constable

Posted: Updated:

A Clay County man is dead after he was shot Friday night by a Laurel County constable. It happened at an East Bernstadt gas station while customers were inside.

Across from the East Bernstadt Church of God is the A and B Quick Stop Gas Station.It was there, around 9 o'clock Friday night, when Laurel County deputies say  Constable Bobby Joe Smith was attempting to serve a warrant on a man who was inside that store.

"We understand that maybe a couple days prior to last night, that he had stopped a motor vehicle and this man had been in there and he had made an arrest on two individuals. However, this individual fled the scene and we understand that he developed some information that he was at this business," said Laurel County Sheriff's Deputy Gilbert Acciardo. 

The victim, 30-year-old Brandon Stanley of Manchester was pronounced dead at the scene. Stanley was allegedly shopping in the store, which is near the intersection of Old Richmond Road and KY 3094.

"There were several customers in the building at the time, and we're going to have to conduct interviews and collect statements. There's some evidence that we obtained at the scene, we're going to have to analyze that evidence," said Acciardo. 

An autopsy was performed on Stanley Saturday morning. The investigation is on-going and a presentation will be made before the next term of the Laurel County Grand Jury.
