LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky State Police are investigating a fatal shooting in the parking lot of a convention center in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.

Officials say KSP troopers were on a traffic stop late Saturday night near Eagle Lake Convention Center when they heard what sounded like multiple gunshots.
