Unfortunately, Shawn is still at large. Public Information Officer Nicholas Hale for the Kentucky State Police exclusively told Radar that there are “no updates at this time," but added that he is "armed and dangerous." "We believe he has several weapons on him. We’ve been told he’s stolen a couple of pistols off his own family members," he told the site, revealing that Shawn “probably hoped Meyer was home at the time.”

This is not the first incident between Shawn and the Palins. In 2011, Shawn was arrested for harassing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family, and she eventually obtained a restraining order against him. She also accused him of threatening to rape one of her daughters and sending them a ticket showing he was coming to Alaska with a receipt for a gun purchase.
