KENTON COUNTY, Ky. (WXIX) - A man has died after an hours-long swat situation in Covington Thursday night.

Daniel Ray was shot by police a little after 11:30 p.m., according to Kenton County Prosecutor Rob Sanders.

Sanders says Ray was wanted for 12 counts of attempted murder of police officers for shooting at the officers earlier in the evening.

Neighbors say at least three police cruisers pulled up to the house around 8:45 p.m.

Several loud bangs believed to be flash-bang grenades started sounding around 10:45 p.m.
