TBO Posted December 11, 2018 Share Posted December 11, 2018 Knox County man charged with attempted murder after firing rifle at trooper HIMYAR, Ky. (WYMT) - A man is behind bars for allegedly shooting a gun at a police officer. Around 12:40 a.m. Monday, a Kentucky State Police trooper and a Knox County Sheriff's deputy responded to an assault complaint. They went to a home off KY Hwy 930 in the Himyar community. When police arrived, they tried to talk to Jason Marsee, 47, of Gray. A woman peeked out of a bedroom window and then quickly closed the blinds. Officers said Marsee then fired eight rounds with a .22 caliber rifle through the side of the house, almost hitting the state trooper. Two of the rounds hit a neighbor's home, one of which hit a room where two people were sleeping. The trooper and deputy took cover until Marsee came out of the house and threw the rifle into the yard. They then arrested him. While searching the home, the trooper found a monitor showing the cruisers in the driveway, several guns, a police scanner and marijuana. Kentucky State Police is still investigating. Marsee was charged with attempted murder of a police officer, first-degree wanton endangerment, menacing, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and possession of a radio that sends/receives police messages.
