    W.Va. trooper shoots, kills man outside detachment

    ELIZABETH, W.Va. (AP) — A State Police spokesman says a trooper has fatally shot an armed man outside of a detachment in Wirt County.

    Sgt. Michael Baylous says the trooper was responding to a report of shots fired late Wednesday afternoon at the Elizabeth detachment from outside the empty building. As the trooper arrived, he was confronted by a man with a rifle and responded by shooting the man.

    The man, who wasn’t immediately identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.
    Baylous says the man had apparently forced a UPS driver in Ritchie County to take him to the Elizabeth detachment. The man allegedly got out of the delivery truck, walked across the parking lot and opened fire on the detachment. The UPS driver wasn’t injured.

    Baylous declined to release the trooper’s name.

    Maybe this?

    hment (from the French Détachement) is a military unit. It can either be detached from a larger unit for a specific function or (particularly in United States Army usage) be a permanent unit smaller than a battalion. The term is often used to refer to a unit that is assigned to a different base from the parent unit. An example is the United States Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (Airborne) (1st SFOD-D (A)), commonly known as Delta Force by the general public.

    Detachment is also the term used as the collective noun for personnel manning an artillery piece (e.g. gun detachment).

    A Cadet detachment usually consists of between 10 and 40 cadets. Several detachments make up a company.

    Detachment:

    When one points a gun at a state trooper, your soul gets detached from your body.

    A Detachment,and or Barracks,is a divisional office for state police,since there are several districts in most states Troopers are assigned to the different detachments and can switch,almost like being in the military only staying within one states boundaries.
    Most detachments usually are empty except during shift change or when troopers need to drop off or pick up paperwork
    "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
