 Kentucky State Police are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting in Frankfort.
 State police said the Frankfort Police Department received a call from a woman at 9:15 p.m. Sunday.
 She told dispatch that a man had her trapped inside a home on Winding Way and was pointing a gun at her.
 Police said she told them he was threatening to shoot anyone who came into the house.
 Officers arrived at the home and got ahold of the woman, who told them she was in another part of the house and away from the man.
 Hostage Negotiation Teams were called to the scene.
 State police said the man left the home with a handgun but refused to put it down despite several commands to do so by the officers.
 Police said the man then pointed a gun at officers and was shot.
 The man was taken to Franklin County Regional Medical Center where he died from gunshot wounds.
The Franklin County Coroner identified the man as Gary Meadows, 55, of Frankfort.
 The woman was not injured in the incident.
