Sheriff’s Deputy Shoots, Kills Driver After Being Struck
By Mike Perleberg
(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
what is it with kids these days!? they think rules don't apply to them but they do! that girl should of stopped when the deputy asked her too!
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!
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.
@Namvet 6970 he should never breath again ... the unarmed child he murdered will not
@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 !
@gawker He murdered an UN ARMED CHILD Why ...? because people like YOU indicate to him that it is OK it is worthless people like YOU that alow things like this to happen an continue to happen !
@gawker Step up you winney ass BITCH !
@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 things like this will keep happening as l;ong as Good people stand by an do NOTHING !
@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 !
