Wildcat Wearhouse raises funds for fallen Pikeville officer's family

The Pikeville officer had been assisting the Kentucky State Police with an investigation in the area when he was fatally shot in the head, WVAH reported.

The officer was killed Tuesday night while patrolling the Hurricane Creek area with a state trooper.

Police have arrested the Eastern Kentucky man wanted in connection with the death of a police officer. Troopers released Hall's image Thursday morning, saying he was considered "armed and unsafe".

However, they later said the suspected shooter has not been captured.

That's when Martin heard a gunshot and returned to find Hamilton with a fatal gunshot wound, police said.

According to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office, warrants are being obtained for John Russell Hall in the killing of Officer Scotty Hamilton.

Police arrested four people on unrelated charges at the scene of the shooting.

Anyone having information about the crime should contact Kentucky State Police Post 9 at 606-433-7711 or the Pikeville Police Department at 606-437-5111. "Please keep his family in your prayers".

A police officer has died after being shot in the line of duty. All profits will be donated to Officer Hamilton's wife and infant daughter. They have been using critical response teams in that search, including a helicopter. The funeral is Sunday at 1 p.m.
