    Cabell Co WV Sheriff Deputy Involved in Shooting

    This happend inside the Huntington, WV city limit, but the Sheriff Dept. are the ones who serve warrants county wide. Not much to go on except this guy apparently felt that the Deputy would not use a firearm or that they would try to stop or arrest him.

    Guess he found out the hard way.

    Do as your told, obey the nice man with the .45 Sig and don't continue walking towards them in a probably threating manner.



    Cabell deputy sheriff shoots man

    The Herald-Dispatch

    HUNTINGTON,WV — A South Point, Ohio, man underwent surgery Monday, Feb. 15, for a gunshot wound he received from a Cabell County deputy sheriff. The unnamed deputy fired on the man after the suspect failed to comply with the deputy’s demands, according to a press release issued by the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office.

    Jeremy Runyon received a single gunshot wound to the stomach, according to the press release and defense attorney Kerry Nessel. Both sources expect Runyon to survive.

    Court documents provided by the Sherriff’s Office indicate Runyon was wanted for failing to appear in court. The order and companion arrest warrant were filed Jan. 15, after Runyon failed to appear at a bond revocation hearing. The press release states Runyon’s underlying charge is felony third-offense domestic violence.

    Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas and Chief Deputy Doug Ferguson confirmed it was a member of their office that shot the person. The deputy’s name has not been released, but the deputy was placed on adminstrative leave.

    “We’re in the infancy of the investigation,” McComas said.

    Cabell County 911 received word of a shooting at 6:53 a.m. It occurred in a backyard adjacent to an alley within the 300 block of 5th Avenue.

    Nearby construction workers witnessed the event. Frank Maddix, of Pebbles, Ohio, was among them. He didn’t see anything, but heard multiple gunshots. He said it didn’t sound as if the deputy did anything wrong.

    “The guy didn’t want to listen,” Maddix said. “He told him to stop. Not approach him. The guy wouldn’t stop.”

    Maddix’s colleague saw the incident take place and called 911 at the deputy’s request.

    The 6:53 a.m. shooting occurred a minute after dispatchers received word of a foot pursuit in the 100 block of 4th Avenue.

    Authorities at the scene said the man and the one being pursued were in fact the same person.

    The man was taken to an area hospital. McComas and others said the man was expected to survive.

    Authorities said the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office had indicated it would retain jurisdiction investigate the incident.

    The Huntington Police Department and West Virginia State Police were on scene providing assistance

    One is either stupid or HAS bad intentions to advance upon a deputy who is pointing a firearm at you and giving orders to stop.

    I guess this dirt bag must fall into the 'stupid' category...

    Now we can move him into the 'stupid, wounded, with additional charges' category.

    The Vietnam Vet incident comes to mind where he used am M1 carbine to kill the deputy after refusing several lawful orders
