Sheriffs say the suspect who killed three police officers in a gun battle in eastern Kentucky was a "terrorist on duty."

(CNN)Suspected of killing three law enforcement officers and injuring several others in eastern Kentucky Was charged on Friday. Officials said there were several murders, including the killing of police officers and the assault on military animals.

Lance Storz, 49, was charged in Floyd County Court on Friday morning when the accusation against him was explained. The judge set his bond in $ 10 million in cash.

It's unclear if Storz, who appeared in the video with multiple bruises and lacerations on his face, has a lawyer. The judge said he would appoint a public inquiry counsel to represent him at a future inquiry.

When Storz fired Thursday night, he was serving a warrant related to a domestic violence incident in the city of Allen, Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt told reporters after hearing. ..

"When they arrived ... they encountered pure hell. They didn't have a chance," the sheriff said, and when the shooting began, the agent was even a suspicious shooter. He added that he was not in contact.

The shooter seemed to have a plan, "he carried out the plan almost exactly," Hunt said. Sheriffs said it took several hours to figure out where the shooter was firing.

"(The suspect) was a complete terrorist ... he was just a terrorist on a mission," the sheriff said.

The Sheriff's Office has identified the murdered police officers as Floyd County Deputy William Petrie and Prestonberg Police Captain Ralph Frazier. On Friday, the Prestonberg Police Department said officers and dog handler Jacob R. Chaffins were also killed.

In a Facebook post, Mayor Prestonberg wrote to the city, "I want to thank the city for the show of support and the overflow of love from the community." He went on to say, "We lost a longtime friend and 39-year law enforcement veteran in Floyd County of Ralph Frazier. He left so many loved ones."
Prestonberg police issued a statement in aFacebook postafter the murder of Chaffins.

"You have devoted yourself to serving Prestonberg and the citizens of the Commonwealth as EMTs, firefighters and police officers on this planet. In addition, you have devoted yourself to the security of our country. Brave soldiers. "

Preliminary investigations conducted by Kentucky police also found that police dogs hit by stray bullets died as a result of these injuries.

Four police officers and one civilian were first reported injured by thestate police. Three of the officers (one of whom was Chaffins) were hospitalized, one in danger and the other two in stable condition.

A fourth officer was treated and released. State police said civilians were still hospitalized.

Floyd County lawyer Keith Bartley said on Friday morning, "These are humans. These are people with children, spouses, mothers, fathers, and their worlds are never the same. ".

Sheriff said an agent hidden under a running patrol vehicle ended up with carbon monoxide poisoning.

"Other police officers were injured in other ways, trying to get into or escape from that position," Hunt said. The

agent was finally able to negotiate with Storz with the help of his family after nearly six hours of vigorous shooting, officials said.

Mr. Bartley said there would be "substantially more" charges. The first "the assault was basically in the middle of the war zone."

Storz, who is in prison in Pike County, will then appear in court for a preliminary hearing at 1:30 pm on July 11.

Authorities said Storz used multiple firearms to attack law enforcement agencies.

"Last night, Floyd County and our brave first responders suffered tragic losses. I want everyone in Kentucky to pray for this community. This is a tough morning for our federation, "said the Governor of Kentucky. Andy Beshear said in a Twitter post on Friday.
