OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

A shooting in Owensboro left one man dead and four law enforcement officials on paid leave.

It began as a joint drug investigation between Owensboro Police Street Crime and Kentucky State Police Drug Enforcement Units.

Officers tracked the suspect, 38-year-old Chrislon Talbott, to a motel on Frederica Street late Wednesday night.

There was also a woman in the room with him.

Officers say Talbott indicated that he wasn't going to cooperate, so three hostage negotiators were brought to the scene.

KSP says Talbott came out of a room around midnight and shot at officers. He was wounded in an exchange of gunfire.

Talbott was taken to the hospital where he later died.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

We're told Owensboro Police Officers Troy Crouch, Chris Hayes and Matthew Ralph and KSP Detective Matt Conley have all been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard protocol.

None of the officers, or anyone else involved, was hurt.

Kentucky State Police is investigating.
