State Police have identified the man who they say was killed in a trooper-related shooting.

They say 55-year-old Kenneth Dyer died Wednesday afternoon.

Troopers say it happened after they were called to a report of an armed man at a home on US-60 in Olive Hill.

Investigators say police got there and found Dyer sitting in a chair and holding a handgun.

Troopers say they told Dyer several times to drop his weapon, but he instead pointed it at them...so they were forced to shoot.

Dyer died at the scene.
