And assholes trying to rob salvage yards:
2 deputies killed, 2 injured in Buchanan CountyThe implication to be drawn from the last two sentences is that the officers who tracked him down summarily shot the murderer and saved us having to pay for his upkeep at the Holiday Inn Pocahontas for the rest of his sorry life.
Vansant, Va. -- A suspect opened fire on sheriff's deputies responding to a robbery call at a rural salvage yard Sunday, killing two and injuring two others before being killed in a shootout, Virginia State Police said.
One of the injured deputies suffered life-threatening injuries. The other was in serious condition, state police said.
The owner of Roger's Service Center in the Southwest Virginia community of Vansant told police that his business was being robbed and he had blocked the suspect's vehicle with his own.
State police Sgt. Steve Lowe said that when deputies and state police arrived about 2 p.m., shots were fired. Two Buchanan County deputies were hit and died at the scene.
The other two deputies were shot when they arrived at the salvage yard, Lowe said.
State police and other officers found the suspect about two hours later and after "some sort of engagement," they shot and killed him, Lowe said.
"I'm not sure what the confrontation was when they encountered him," Lowe said. "Apparently he was identified as the right person." [link]
Works for me.
Our hearts go out to the widows and orphans made so by this lowlife scumbag.
