Details are sketchy at this point, but Pulaski Prosecutor Larry Jegley confirms State Police are gathering information about the death of a prison parolee in a shootout with Perry County deputy sheriffs Friday evening at a home west of Perryville on Highway 60. I have no ID.
Jegley said deputies had returned to the house, where the man lived with his parents, after an earlier disturbance call. He said deputies reported the man fired multiple shots and appeared at the doorway of the house with a rifle. A deputy fired three shots at the man, who fell dead. At this point it's not clear, however, what shots might have killed him.
