7/29/2014: Christian County deputies went to Edwards' home to investigate "an unlawful use of weapons." Residents allowed the officers to come into the house. Police called for backup after seeing drug paraphernalia. Edwards shot at the police and jumped out of a window onto the roof. There was a standoff for hours. Edwards finally set the roof on fire with a cigarette lighter. While the roof was smoldering, he fired at SWAT officers who returned fire and killed him. http://herald-review.com/news/local/suspect-shot-to-death-during-police-standoff-identified/article_30def91d-b8d6-5052-9019-48ba72b65fe2.html
