FULTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police shot and injured a western Kentucky man after what troopers describe as an armed standoff.

Trooper Jay Thomas says officers were called to an apartment complex in Fulton at 11:20 p.m. Sunday. Thomas says 56-year-old Keith E. Dildine barricaded himself inside an apartment and refused to come out.

Thomas says Dildine fired shots at Fulton police officers as well as troopers. Officers and a trooper shot back and hit Dildine.

Thomas says Dildine surrendered. He was taken by ambulance to Parkway Regional Hospital and later air lifted to The Med Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., where he remained in critical condition Monday.

Dildine faces two counts of criminal attempt of murder of a police officer.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
