Martinsburg, West Virginia (AP) — A West Virginia police officer was shot dead and the suspect was found dead after a stalemate on Friday.
Members of the state police and the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office were trying to find a suspect in the murder, Colonel Shallon R. Oglesby of the state police said in an email.
Troopers wearing ballistic vests were shot inside Martinsburg’s mansion and taken for medical evaluation, Oglesby said.
According to Oglesby, the suspect put up a barricade inside the house. When a policeman was shot into the mansion, the suspect was confirmed dead.
Neither the suspect nor the police officer was identified.
