Suspect in slaying of Kentucky police officer still on the run

A Pikeville, Kentucky police officer was fatally shot in the line of duty Tuesday, March 13.

An officer with Pikeville Police Department was shot to death late Tuesday evening in Pike County.

Owner Paul Patula says as his restaurant is a personal franchise, he feels it is important to broadcast their support for law enforcement in every way possible, including social media.

KSP said Hamilton and Trooper Matt Martin were patrolling the area when they saw a suspicious vehicle. After speaking to the people in the vehicle, the officers chose to make a quick search around the area and a nearby residence to check for any questionable subjects on foot. His wife is Chelsi Lawson Hamilton and they have a daughter. Shortly after Martin heard a series of gunshots fired in close proximity and searched for Hamilton, who was pronounced dead on the scene.

Hamilton had worked several investigations with the KSP, Sims said. "It was routine. We try to have a presence and attempt to locate any individuals involved in activity".

The body was transported back to the community in what turned out to be an emotional processional.
