Investigation Continues In Shooting Involving Off-Duty Deputy

State Police are still looking into the incident that led to the death of Harold Powers on Wednesday.
The investigation into what may have prompted a shoot-out between a sheriff's deputy and a Lewisport man continues tonight in western Kentucky. State troopers say Harold Powers went to the deputy's home in Hancock County Wednesday with the intent of killing him. After a confrontion, we're told the men exchanged fire. Powers later died.

Why?  Why did Harold Powers target Deputy Kenneth Eubanks at his home Wednesday afternoon?  That's what state police investigators are still trying to determine.  An autopsy report shows Powers died of a single gun shot wound to the chest.  But this wasn't the first time they met.  Troopers say Deputy Eubanks did a stand-by at a home on John Pate Road just outside Lewisport more than a week ago.  Trooper Corey King says Eubanks was supervising powers and powers' wife during a domestic situation.  Meanwhile, investigators plan to interview Eubanks again about the incident.  Sheriff Dale Bozarth says Eubanks is on paid leave at this time, while investigators continue determining why all this happened.
