CRAIGSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities say an 84-year-old man who shot and wounded two West Virginia sheriff's deputies has been killed by police.
State Police Sgt. Michael Baylous said the man was killed Saturday afternoon after he emerged from the house in Craigsville with a gun. He had barricaded himself after the deputies' shootings and had exchanged gunfire with police.
Earlier Saturday, two deputies were airlifted to Charleston for treatment after they were shot. Baylous said the deputies' injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
Both men were shot with a shotgun.
The man killed by police has not been identified.
