A 79-year-old suspected drunken driver shot a state trooper in the head as the officer tried to handcuff him during a traffic stop in southern in, police said.

Indiana State Police Trooper Morgenn Evans pulled the driver of a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado truck over just after 7 p.m.in the area of East Park Place and Main Street. Jerry Goodin said Wednesday. Trooper Evans was transported to the University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville, KY with non-life threatening injuries.

Kays is now in custody after being arrested at his home.

Gold falls in anticipation of interest rate hike
Prices are roughly 7.5% off their year-to-date highs from early September, though they are still up about 8% for the year. The Fed has increased rates twice in 2017 and is still expected to push through three more hikes next year.

"This is obviously no joking matter", Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull said. At the time of the press release, it was not known if Trooper Evans' shots wounded Kays or if he was wounded by his own gun or debris from the shots fired.

Both the suspect and state trooper were transported to a local hospital for their injuries.

ISP said officers then saw Kays had a wound, which officials believe was from the earlier shooting.

Kays told investigators he shot the trooper because "he didn't want to go to jail", Goodin said.
