    As the story has been told to me @ 1500 EDT (HEARSAY ALERT).

    This saga has pretty much unfolded. The investigation at both shooting sites continues.

    An off-duty Franklin County, VA. Deputy Sheriff drove his cruiser to Roanoke and caught up with his ex-wife. He shot her, and she has expired.

    A VSP Trooper located the deputy traveling on I-81. A chase ensued, the deputy crashed his cruiser.

    The deputy pulled his M-4 and shot the Troop in the leg. The Trooper will survive.

    Fire was returned by officers. The deputy was shot and is in critical condition.
    -end-

    Cops are now shooting Cops....wth?... *sigh*
    (for clarification: the Trooper had no choice but, to fire upon the deputy)

    :sadangel: My sympathies for those around the dead officer... Hopefully the Trooper's wound is minor.

    GPalmer... thanks for your thoughts. To clarify, there is no dead officer as of yet. However, the Sheriff's Deputy (who first fired upon, and struck, the Trooper) was shot by the VSP Trooper.

    The deputy slain his ex-wife.

    The article mentions she was an officer or at least that's how I read it.

    About 10 miles from here. Ugh. May the deputy enjoy a long and tormented life in prison.

    He probably will be tormented. Shooting his ex-wife for what? May the trooper heal OK.

    Hang him high.

    What a disgrace. Not only shoot your ex, but do it with SO equipment, then shoot at brother LEOs? I hope he burns for that.

    Right now, I'm not even up to reading something this crazy.

    So I'll just say prayers for the recovering Good Guys. And let the chips fall hard on who that deserves it.

    Horrible. I'm willing to bet there is very detailed cctv video of the Sheetz shooting. They have the best cameras I have seen. Hope the Trooper heals physically and mentally.

    Thoughts and prayers inbound for the Trooper.... My condolences go out to the family and friends of the murdered woman.

    I've got nothing but bad thoughts for the badge traitor. :steamed:

    Not that it matters much but I wonder if he shot the Tpr in the leg on purpose or just prayed and sprayed. He may have not wanted to seriously hurt him knowing that he would return fire and take him out. What crazynuss.

    OMG..... I don't know what to think, let alone say, about this. Charlie Foxtrot squared...... :shocked:

    God be with the trooper, this will be something that will stick with him forever.

    What a piece of ****. :steamed: I hope he rots in prison. Actually, he should be sentenced to death for this.

    Prayers sent for the Trooper and his swift recovery.
