Kentucky State Police have released the name of a Fulton police officer who fatally shot a man earlier this week.
According to a news release, Fulton police Sergeant James Buckingham remains on administrative leave stemming from Monday's shooting.
Preliminary autopsy reports show Charles Christopher McClure, a 43-year-old white male, was shot twice in the torso.
Police say McClure had a knife and a metal pole and had refused to obey officers' orders.
Officers were called to the scene after 911 calls reported a man acting erratically and smashing car windows with a pole.
Buckingham has been with the department for seven years and has been a law enforcement officer in the state for more than three decades.
