(Boone County, Ky.) – A 19-year-old Covington woman is dead and a Boone County Sheriff’s deputy is on administrative leave after an incident on River Road early Saturday morning.

At around 2:10 a.m., Deputy Tyler Brockman stopped his cruiser in the 6600 block of River Road as he investigated a report of a party happening in a field. According to sheriff’s office spokesman Tom Scheben, Brockman was out of his cruiser and ordered the driver of a car that was leaving the party and just starting out on River Road to stop.

Instead of stopping, that driver, Samantha Ramsey, 19, of Covington, accelerated and struck Brockman. The deputy landed on the hood of the car. He then fired four shots through the windshield.

Ramsey stopped and backed up a short distance. The vehicle came to rest in a ditch on the side of the road.

Ramsey was transported to Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Florence where she was pronounced dead.

Brockman, 28, was treated for a leg injury and released from Saint Elizabeth in Edgewood.

Scheben said that Boone County Sheriff Michael Helmig has ordered a full investigation into the officer involved shooting. Brockman, who has been a K9 depty with the department since June of 2010, has been placed on administrative leave, as the department’s policy dictates in such sitations.

Ramsey has no prior record with the sheriff’s office, Scheben said.

You are  one of the people that is stupid enough to BELIEVE that as this man was struck  an rolled off the hood of a car he was able to draw his weapon   square off with the driver and then fire 4 rounds  into the UN ARMED CHILD  ...REALLY ... did you see where  he was standing  as she drove off ....? he was beside the car  .. Not in front  of it !  He MURDERED  THE UNARMED CHILD

if the cop was struck  how did he  ( 1 ) draw his weapon .... ( 2 ) have time to fire  ( 4 )  four shots....  as the young man said  on the interview ... the Murdering THUG ( COP )  ... jumped on her hood with his weapon  out ...  and fired 4 shots into the UNARMED  CHILD !   does the GANG THUG... ( COPS ) expect  every one to be stupid enough to think  that as this Murdering thug ( COP )  is being struck  by a car .. he has time and the agility  to not only stay on the hood,   but to draw his weapon,   and fire...  ( 4 ) four rounds into a unarmed CHILD  ? REALLY ??  does this  sound  possible  , for any one to be able to do ?  ANY ONE ?   ( NO ) !   it was MURDER  .. ! nothing  but  MURDER !  he should not only be convicted of murder  but  he should NEVER be aloud out.. I say this people because  he will kill again ... watch  an see. ! If you let him get away with this  it will  be ok to kill kids

People think they can do anything. If you are breaking the law there is an assumed risk you could get hurt,shot, or killed. She took that risk!

I am tired of hearing about young people shot and killed by cops. Another case of overkill.

Are there witnesses who said he landed on the Hood of the Car?  Did he jump in front of the Car and order her to stop? What about following her and calling for back up? Shoot threw the windshield four times?  Something smell's about this very sad story.

@BrandonBallard  what rule  deems the justification of the GANG THUG  to step in front of her car climb up on the hood an MURDER HER .. tell me  what RULE ... or any law that justifies killing an UNARMED CHILD ???  IN FACT ...... there is no such  RULE... there is  no such  LAW ....

as sad as it is  ... it  is probably  a good thing that he did unlawful  step in front of her an climb up on the car an shoot downward ... if not,    he may  have killed the young girl sitting directly behind her  .... there was 4 people in the car an  he should be tryed and convicted of one count of capital Murder and 3 counts of conspiracy of reckless endangerment.... 

 yeah ,  I do know  a little about the some of the laws.  He is NO BETTER than You or I   He is responsible for his own actions.  an should  be more so because of the fact  he is armed !

@dmhel52  the criminal thug gang members ( COPS )  assumed  risks too ... however they  are to be the ones that make the ( RIGHT ) dissensions ... NOT SHOOT UNARMED  KIDS!  this is getting  out of control !  not just here  but all over  the country .. the gang thugs ( COPS ) need to be put back in their place ...  YOU CAN NOT JUST SHOOK A KID  because  YOU HAVE A WEAPON ! The badge does not make you GOD ... you can not just take a child's life BECAUSE  you want too !

@dmhel52   freakin  thug murders  ( COPS )  think they can just shoot  some one because they do not comply to their  threats ..  He shot an killed an UN ARMED  CHILD .. No  She did not   threaten his life .  She was driving .. even a DUMB  DOG knows  not to step out in front of  a car ... if the dumb dog does ...  he assumes  the risk .  He  was NOT struck  by the car  He JUMPED ON THE HOOD !   the fired four ( 4 ) shots into a unarmed   CHILD  Through  her windshield !   it is People LIKE YOU that make it possable for  this to continue to happen !  In My opinion  he should  not only be put in prison  for MURDER ... but  there should be  more training for all of the  THUG  Criminals   ( COPS )   on when they should  remove a weapon from  its holster ..... it is Not  because a Child  is not doing  what  some one  with a weapon it screaming  at them !  Now as for YOUR STUPID  comment  F U  dumb ass. you would not be saying this stupid comment if that was your child that is now DEAD !
