Suspect in Road Worker Death Refuses Court Appearance Again

Dec. 10, 2021

A man accused of killing a construction worker and shooting a Louisville Metro police officer gets one more chance to come to court or he will be forcibly brought, says a report on WLKY.

For the second week in a row, the station says Keyshaun Stewart refused to cooperate with jail staff when it was time to be brought in for arraignment.

Stewart is accused of fatally shooting Fred O'Bannon at a construction site on I-264 in Shively on Nov. 19. Louisville Metro police investigators said Stewart shot O'Bannon in his work truck. The worker died on the scene.

Stewart then pointed the gun at another worker before opening fire on Sgt. James Chris Lane. The police officer was shot in the face, but was still able to chase after Stewart, shooting him twice, investigators said.
