Deputy US marshal, suspect killed in W.Va.



Published: Wed, February 16, 2011 @ 1:51 p.m.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Authorities say one of three deputy U.S. marshals shot while attempting to serve a warrant in north-central West Virginia has died. The suspect also was killed in the shootout.

U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Dave Oney in Washington, D.C., said the shooting occurred at 8:30 a.m. today as deputy U.S. marshals approached a residence in Elkins. He didn’t have details but confirmed the deputy marshal died and that the suspect was fatally shot at the residence where two other deputy U.S. marshals also were wounded.

All three deputy marshals were taken to a hospital by helicopter. Oney said he didn’t immediately know where the deputy marshal died. He didn’t release the names of the deputies or the suspect.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John Kaull in Clarksburg told The Associated Press a search warrant had been issued for the residence of Charles Smith, who was wanted on a 2006 bench warrant on federal drug and related charges.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Smith was involved in the shooting.

Sgt. Michael Baylous, a State Police spokesman, said troopers were at the residence helping the marshals execute the warrant.

My condolences to the Marshal's family, but that's what happens when you barge in on someone without knocking. Better knock first Mr. Deputies...
