HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) -- A western Kentucky man has been returned to the state to face charges of criminal attempt to commit murder of a police officer.

Kentucky State Police say 56-year-old Keith Dildine fired shots at police in Fulton on July 7. Trooper Mark Franklin shot Dildine multiple times, ending a standoff.

Dildine was taken to Parkway Regional Hospital in Fulton, then flown to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tenn.

After being released from the hospital, police said, Dildine was taken into custody by Memphis police and then turned over to the Shelby County Sheriff's Department on Friday.

Dildine remains in the Fulton County Detention Center in Hickman. Jail records do no list an attorney.
