Christian County Courthouse Evacuated for Suspicious Substance

The Christian County Courthouse was evacuated Thursday afternoon after a suspicious substance inside the courts building caused physical reactions to deputies.

Christian County Sheriff Brad Cole says a deputy fainted as a woman attempted to go through security and her bag was checked. Three other deputies who investigated also fell ill, and all four were taken to a local hospital for treatment and decontamination.

The woman has been quarantined by police.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
