A man has died after being shot by two state troopers in Carter County Wednesday evening.

Kentucky State Police say troopers were called to a home on US-60 in Olive Hill around 4:30pm due to reports of an armed man.

Police say when they got there, a man was sitting in a chair behind the house with a handgun.

The officers say they told him to drop his weapon, but that he instead pointed it at them...so they were forced to shoot.

Police say the man died at the scene.

The man's name has not yet been released.
