Kentucky State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting which left one person dead.

We're told the Greenville Police Department contacted Kentucky State Police for a barricaded person Friday evening.

We're told Greenville Police went into a home in the four-hundred block of James Street to serve a mental health warrant.

Police say a man shot at officers before barricading himself in his basement.

KSP says the man came out of his home with a rifle in what they say was a threatening manner.

Authorities say a trooper responded by firing his weapon hitting the man.

The Muhlenberg County coroner pronounced the man dead at the scene.

Police say no officers were injured during the incident.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
