A Hickman, Kentucky man faces attempted murder and other charges after reportedly shooting at a deputy during a police chase.

It happened between 12:45-2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says there was an hour long stand-off with the gunman who had barricaded himself in his vehicle next to a home in Symsonia.

Terry Patterson, 35, of Hickman, Ky. was charged with attempted murder of a police officer, wanton endangerment first police officer, fleeing and evading first motor vehicle, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, DUI and other traffic offenses.

Redmon says that Deputy Richard Edwards was searching for Patterson when he received information that he was traveling north on KY 131 in the Kaler area.

Deputy Edwards then reportedly spotted the vehicle and tried to make a traffic stop when Patterson began to flee from him in his vehicle.

Redmon says Patterson then slowed down and pointed a handgun out the window towards the deputy and fired a shot at him while traveling on KY 131 in Kaler.

The sheriff says the pursuit lasted almost 15 minutes with speeds reaching more than 90 mph. Other Deputies and Redmon along with Kentucky State Police Troopers responded to the area.

Patterson pulled into a driveway at the intersection of KY 348 and KY 1949 and would not come out of his vehicle.

Redmon says negotiators were able to make contact with Patterson by cell phone and after an hour of encouraging him to disarm, he came out of the vehicle unarmed.

Patterson was taken to the Graves County Jail.
