RUSSELLVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say a man suspected in the shooting of a woman at a fast food restaurant in downtown Russellville was later confronted and fatally shot by police.

State police spokesman B.J. Eaton says in a release that a bystander was also hit by gunfire.

Eaton says the suspect, who has not been identified, shot a woman at a McDonald's restaurant and then fled on foot. The woman was taken to the Medical Center in Bowling Green.

The man encountered responding Russellville Police Department officers on North Main Street and was shot and killed.

Police say the injured bystander was across the street when he was hit. He was flown to a hospital in Nashville for treatment.
