Kentucky State Police are investigating a fatal shooting, involving an off-duty Hancock County Sheriff's deputy and another man. It began with a report that Harold Powers of Lewisport was traveling to Deputy Kenneth Eubanks house, on Highway-2181 near Hawesville Wednesday afternoon. Troopers say Powers was on Eubanks front porch when he fired at the deputy and missed. They say the 50-year old Eubanks returned fire, and hit Powers in the chest. The 43-year old Powers was taken to Perry County Memorial Hospital in Tell City, where he later died.
