A man has died at the University of Kentucky Medical Center after being shot by police following a pursuit in Cumberland County.

Charles Whitley died from a gunshot wound Thursday morning, two days after the shooting.

Kentucky State Police say the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office responded Tuesday morning to a report of a suspicious vehicle, but the car would not pull over.

Burkesville Police and Kentucky State Police joined in the chase, that ended when Whitley crashed into the deputy's vehicle.

An officer's weapon was fired during the pursuit, but police haven't determined when the shot was fired or which department the officer was with.
