Deputy shot twice, saved by bulletproof vest; arrests made
In May 13 Issue

Deputy Cary York was not injured by the two bullets which struck him in the chest early Wednesday morning, Sheriff Larry Bennett said.

“He was wearing his bullet-proof vest,” Bennett said. “That vest certainly saved his life.”

He said that deputy had made a “traffic stop” on what was described as a dark colored sedan with dark tinted windows, at 3:27 a.m. and was approaching the vehicle when at least two shots came from the driver's side of the car.

Bennett said the deputy took cover behind his cruiser, twisting his ankle in the process, before returning fire.

The sheriff said they are unsure whether the deputy hit the vehicle or anyone in it with the shot he fired.

Bennett said York has described the vehicle as possibly an early-model Ford Taurus and said he last saw it headed out Manntown Road, Ky-1720 toward US-127.

He said the deputy stopped the car because it had no license plate visible from the rear of the vehicle.

Bennett added that Kentucky State Police Troopers as well as officers from Russell Springs and Jamestown Police Departments responded to the deputy's call for assistance.

24-year-old Shawn Keith Durham, a 5'4" 125 lb. white male with brown hair and brown eyes, of Lincoln County and 23-year-old Michael Wayne Durham, a 5'7" 143 lb. white male with brown hair and brown eyes, of Madison County were arrested in the western part of Virgina Thursday afternoon, according to the Kentucky State Police.

Police are determining how long the Durhams were in Virginia and if they could have been the culprits of the dam incident.

Both men are currently wanted in Boyle County on charges of Robbery 1st, Assault 1st, Kidnapping, Wanton Endangerment 1st and Theft by Unlawful Taking, officials said. 

Both will be brought back to Kentucky to answer to the local charges pending extradition.  No timetable for the extradition is available, according to state police.
