Officials wouldn't give specifics about Trooper Bradley Wilson's condition, but did say he is expected to survive.
Wilson was shot in the neck and torso by 60-year-old Kenneth Lees Sr. as he and another trooper were attempting to execute a search warrants at Lees’ home. Lees took his own life several hours later after barricading himself inside his home.
Police did not storm the house because they suspected a meth lab was operating there and the chemicals used to cook the drug are highly volatile. They had been investigating for about two weeks.
Lees’ son, Kenneth Lees II, is charged with felony counts of aggravated assault and fleeing or attempting to elude police, for taking officers on a 15- to 20-mile chase Thursday night. He’s jailed on $75,000 bail,
