W.Va. Deputies Shot In Standoff, Suspect Killed

July 08, 2013  | 

Two Nicholas County (W.Va.) Sheriff's deputies were shot and wounded Saturday when they responded to a dispute between neighbors, leading to a four-hour standoff that ended when the suspect was fatally shot by police.

John Evans, 84, shot Deputy Buddy Stapleton in the leg and Deputy Tommy Allison in the face and stomach at shortly after 9 a.m. in Craigsville. Evans then barricaded himself in his home for more than four hours, as the West Virginia State Police Special Response Team responded to the scene.

Tactical officers attempted to flush Evans out of the house with tear gas. Police fatally shot him when he attempted to sneak out the back door with a shotgun, reports WSAZ.

Evans apparently suffers from Alzheimer's, his family told the news outlet.
