Madisonville man killed in police confrontation



MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Madisonville man is dead following a confrontation with police.

Madisonville Police Chief Wade Williams told The Messenger (http://bit.ly/1uTzsx1 ) Douglas Mitchell Seaton was involved in a traffic stop on Saturday night by two officers. When they learned that Seaton's driver's license was suspended, there was a scuffle. Williams said Seaton got back into his vehicle and hit an officer while pulling away.

Williams said Seaton led police on a short chase to his home. There he pulled out a weapon and was shot and killed. Williams declined to identify the officers involved. Both have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard department policy.

Madisonville Mayor David Jackson told the paper that Seaton did not fire his gun.

Kentucky State Police have been called in to investigate.
