  • 4 deputies reported shot in Va. - one fatal

    GRUNDY, Va. — Authorities in Buchanan County were searching Sunday for a man armed with a rifle who shot four sheriff's deputies, one fatally, local media reported.

    According to a report at WVVA.com, the officers were shot near the Grundy area in Deskins at about 3 p.m.

    WVVA.com said the suspect, believed armed with a rifle, was shooting at the officers from the mountains.

    The wounded officers were airlifted to a hospital. The extent of their injuries was unknown, WVVA.com reported.

    A Buchanan County sheriff's dispatcher would only confirm that at least two deputies, and as many as four, had been shot. "We have U.S. marshals, Virginia state police, officers from other jurisdictions and all of our officers out there" searching for the suspect, the dispatcher told msnbc.com.

    Grundy Mayor Roger Powers said authorities were searching an area about six to eight miles east of the town. It is a coal mining area with a population of about 1,100.
    Damn, hopefully they catch the sob without anyone else getting hurt(besides him).
    yeah!

      I was just checking the Officer Down Memorial page and 2 were killed this weekend in NY, one in the city and one Nassau. Prayers for all three families, friends and fellow officers.

            It just keeps getting worse and worse.

            I wonder what the reason for this is. Are more serious criminals being released from prison?

              I would love to believe that--------------but I doubt it. Parole Boards are actually tightening up on who they let out

              People just plain don't give a crap about others anymore.

                  MOUNT RAINIER, Md. - Prince George's County police say a man was shot and critically wounded after he fired at officers.

                  It happened Saturday night in the Mount Rainier area. Police say officers were called after a man was reported to be throwing bottles at cars and banging on store windows.

                  When he got there, police say the man fired at officers, who returned fire. The man was taken to a hospital, and a gun was recovered from the scene.
                  Thankfully this didn't turn into #4 for the weekend. Violence is just gotten out of control and some cities, states and counties want to cut the LE and Fire budgets.

                    I wonder how bad it has to get for society to say enough and untie our hands a little.

                      Get the ACLU to wake up and get some brains, sad that they care most about the thugs.

                            Yea, I don't think they know yet...an update is saying only two deputies and doesn't mention any fatalities.

                            (CNN) -- At least two deputies in Buchanan County, Virginia, have been shot, according to a Buchanan County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman.

                            The shooting occurred in the Devils Branch community, said spokeswoman Sharon Thornsbury. The entire sheriff's department of 35 staffers was on the scene, she said.

                            Information on the deputies' conditions was not immediately available. The department has asked for help from U.S. Marshals and the Virginia State Police, Thornsbury said.

                            Buchanan County is in southwestern Virginia, near the border with West Virginia.
                            yeah!
