Kentucky State Police have completed their investigation into the Sept. 13 fatal shooting of Jesse Gibbons, a spokesman for the Richmond post said Friday.
The results were turned over several weeks ago to Madison County Commonwealth's Attorney David Smith, Trooper Robert Purdy said. Smith will determine whether a Madison County grand jury should hear facts about the case.
Purdy said it is not unusual for a grand jury to review an officer-involved shooting. The material turned over to the prosecutor has not been made public because it is still considered an open investigation, Purdy said.
Gibbons, 29, of Lexington, died after police shot him to death near the Eastern Bypass in Richmond.
Never miss a local story.
Gibbons allegedly assaulted Lexington police officer James Winter at the Circle K in Buckhorn Plaza in Lexington, then fled. Lexington police chased him to Richmond. There, according to state police, Gibbons lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a wooded area on the bypass, where he was shot. Names of the officers involved in the shooting have not been released.
