LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — The man accused of killing Scott County deputy Caleb Conley made his first in-person appearance in court on Friday.

Steven Sheangshang appeared in a Fayette County courtroom around 8:30 a.m. for a preliminary hearing regarding charges connected to the alleged police chase, shooting at Rose and Jim’s Bar, and auto theft in Lexington following the shooting of Conley.


Sheangshang is charged with burglary, assault, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and fraudulent use of a credit card. In a Zoom court appearance last week, he pled not guilty to the charges.

The case will now head to a Fayette County grand jury.

Sheangshang’s next court appearance will be on June 6 where a preliminary hearing will be held in Scott County for charges including murder of a police officer.
