  • Troopers had to shoot Sheriff's Deputy

    A woman and Virginia State trooper were shot in two separate incidents that occurred about 20 minutes apart. Police say Franklin County deputy Jonathan Ashley Agee, age 32 of Boones Mill, shot his ex-wife, Jennifer Louise Agee, at the Sheetz on Williamson Road in Roanoke. State police say Agee later wounded a Virginia State Police sergeant before being shot multiple times by Virginia State Police at the Ironto exit of Interstate 81 in Montgomery County.

    Sheetz Shooting

    Roanoke City Police chief, Chris Perkins, told reporters Agee was following his wife to the Sheetz at the corner of Williamson and Orange Ave. Perkins said Agee shot his ex-wife multiple times in the parking lot of the convenience store. He confirmed that there was a child with her who was unharmed but he would not elaborate. Police say Jennifer Agee was shot with some sort of rifle.

    Police in the area alerted to the shooting and were looking out for the suspect's Franklin County Sheriff's department vehicle. Because so many troopers were on the roads because of the Memorial Day weekend traffic, state police say Agee's vehicle was spotted quickly.

    Trooper and Suspect Shot on Interstate 81

    Sgt. Matt Brannock was eastbound on Route 460 when he spotted Agee's car heading westbound on Rt. 460. According to state police, when Brannock turned around to get behind the deputy's car, Agee activated his lights and sirens. Police say he continued west on Rt. 460 and eventually got onto Interstate 81. Deputy Agee stopped about a mile from the Exit 128 Ironto exit. State police say Agee fired at Brannock and shot the sergeant in the upper leg. Police say Brannock took cover and Agee took off.

    State police eventually stopped Agee at the Exit 128 Ironto exit. Two troopers shot Agee multiple times. Both Sgt. Brannock and Deputy Agee were taken to the hospital. Brannock is expected survive the injuries.

    Agee's injuries are life-threatening, according to state police. The two state troopers involved in the shooting of Agee have been placed on administrative leave. This is standard procedure.

    Franklin County's Response to Deputy-Involved Shootings

    Franklin County Sheriff Ewell Hunt released a statement saying Agee has been suspended without pay and is being charged with unauthorized use of a Franklin County police vehicle. Agee has been employed with the sheriff's office since April 2004.

    “We are shocked and saddened by today’s tragic events. We ask that you keep the families of all involved in your prayers," said Hunt.

    When one goes off the deep end...............nothing is rational.
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

      I am sure it was hard for the troopers to shoot the deputy even thou he tried to kill them.

          It didn't say whether he was on or off duty, in uniform or not etc... what a nightmare, Suspect is a deputy driving a marked police vehicle...

          Sad, glad the trooper wasn't killed.

                    He stopped being a "brother in blue," for God's sake, as soon as he shot at the trooper! Hello? Game over.

                      What about when he killed his ex-wife?

                        Wait. What? The guy just shot his wife or ex wife whaterver she may be, you think he cares much about somebody who he shares the same profession with? After he shot her the dude was in a whole different world, it just so happened he was in a cop car.

                        Guy lost his mind over a female. It happens in the world every single day, just because he was a police officer doesnt make him bulletproof to relationship problems. I hope SGT. Brannock makes a full and speedy recovery.

                          He violated the badge, pure and simple so no sympathy from me. I wish the trooper a speedy recovery.

                              His mindset was no longer that of a cop the moment he pulled the trigger on his wife (and likely, before then).

                              Sad situation; we believe far too much that we are somehow impervious to the same faults as everyone else, until we get a wake-up call.

                              That said, he got the exact response he should've gotten. Could care less whether he pulls through, but hopefully the Troopers doing their job will...
