As the story has been told to me @ 1500 EDT (HEARSAY ALERT).

This saga has pretty much unfolded. The investigation at both shooting sites continues.

An off-duty Franklin County, VA. Deputy Sheriff drove his cruiser to Roanoke and caught up with his ex-wife. He shot her, and she has expired.

A VSP Trooper located the deputy traveling on I-81. A chase ensued, the deputy crashed his cruiser.

The deputy pulled his M-4 and shot the Troop in the leg. The Trooper will survive.

Fire was returned by officers. The deputy was shot and is in critical condition.
-end-

Cops are now shooting Cops....wth?... *sigh*
(for clarification: the Trooper had no choice but, to fire upon the deputy)

GPalmer... thanks for your thoughts. To clarify, there is no dead officer as of yet. However, the Sheriff's Deputy (who first fired upon, and struck, the Trooper) was shot by the VSP Trooper.

The deputy slain his ex-wife.

The article mentions she was an officer or at least that's how I read it.

He probably will be tormented. Shooting his ex-wife for what? May the trooper heal OK.

What a disgrace. Not only shoot your ex, but do it with SO equipment, then shoot at brother LEOs? I hope he burns for that.

So I'll just say prayers for the recovering Good Guys. And let the chips fall hard on who that deserves it.

Not that it matters much but I wonder if he shot the Tpr in the leg on purpose or just prayed and sprayed. He may have not wanted to seriously hurt him knowing that he would return fire and take him out. What crazynuss.

I was just in Roanoke, testing for the Co PD last week. I think I gassed up at that Sheetz on my way to take a spin up the BRP after the test. :faint:

What's worse is this POS killed the ex-wife in front of their oldest daughter.

After reading the article, I seem to remember an article previously posted here a while back about the teenage daughter of the Sheriff of this department, who this dirtbag was apparently involved with.

Such a shame all around. Prayers for the Troopers speedy recovery.

I suspect that a head or two will roll when all is said and done and the dust settles.

Why couldn't Agee have just killed himself and been yet another statistic rather then bring death, injury and humiliation to so many people and this profession in general?

****** bag..... put him in general population. Please!

Sounds like Sheriff Hunt will be out of a job, and Franklin County will be taken to task for not taking greater steps to notify other LE about Agee going rogue.

I'm curious as to why this doosh canoe was even on the job with his moral turpitude issues not to mention his penchant for taking the sheriff's daughter out parking. Sounds like ol' Ewell better retire.

I'm not a LEO so I was wondering how long does it take to issue a BOL?Do y'all think it would have been faster than calling the Salem PD?:dunno:

Also was the deceased ex-wife sending text msgs to the current wife out of guilt or just to rile her up and get her ex back?Not that its a reason to kill her but dang why fuel the fire?

Glad the Trooper will be okay and hopefully the Deputy doesn't pull through to save taxpayers money.And if he does may he get the death penalty...

ORI: VAALLTERM

BOLO BOLO BOLO for a ****ing crazy FCSO deputy, name and description inserted here. who is in a marked FCSO car, armed with a rifle, threatening to kill his ex wife. Car is a white CVPI with FCSO markings and lightbar. Car equipped with police radio, shotgun, personal armor, and other LE equipment. Crazy Deputy Left 1234 Goatscrew Lane in Crapville at 1220 hours this date. Ex wife is so and so, residing at 5678 Uhoh Drive in Salem, works at Bob and Tina's Restaurant in Roanoke.

If located stop and hold for FCSO. Use caution. Repeat, suspect is armed with a rifle, is in a marked police car, may be in a police uniform, and has threatened to kill his ex-wife.

Took me 3 minutes. I timed it.

I'd also have been calling every agency around to make sure they had the info and didn't overlook it.

The calling Salem PD thing the sheriff is claiming he did is obviously this: He figured Dep Agee was nutty but not a viable threat, he didntt want to make a big production of it and then have all the other agencies think less of him and FCSO when Agee did nothing. Plus, he didn't want to jam Agee up at work over what he probably considered some marital / civil BS. So the sheriff called Salem to let them know but didn't bother with a BOLO because that way the ripple was kept to a minimum. Bad call.

I wonder why no one called the ex-wife and warned her?

GPalmer, seems that Agee's current wife is a Roanoke Deputy (I don't know if City or County).

TScottW99
06-02-2011, 22:34
The current wife is a Roanoke City Deputy.

The father of Agee is a 30 year retired officer from another local department. He also called the Sheriff.

The tape of the Sheriff calling Salem PD is out now and is sad. No urgency what so ever.

Ahhh, that was probably it. There just isn't any up side in this situation is there? I would imagine her career will be at best marginalized.

MeefZah is basically correct. VCIN (Virginia Criminal Information Network) is the medium used in VA. to issue BOLs. The system will transmit a message, and receive it, in under two seconds.

Any time delay with the distribution of information will be on the part of the issuing agency (time to type and send), and the receiving agency (time to read/interpret it, then dissemination to its respective field units).

For example, the Roanoke area law enforcement agencies, to include Salem City, are computerized. The respective Communications Center would have radio announced such a BOL in a matter of seconds post receiving the message over VCIN. Then, the actual BOL (the text) would have been transmitted to the MDTs in each police cruiser, and over individual officer's pager. The "alert" would be acknowledged as received by each field unit. We're likely looking at less than five minutes from the time of the first key stroke in Franklin Co., to the BOL being in the hands of the entire region.

MeefZah says that it took him three minutes to type his spoof BOL. The majority of Communications Specialists I'm familiar with could type Meef's BOL in half that time or less.

Franklin Co. Sheriff's Communications log shows that the dispatcher was going to initiate a VCIN, BOL. The Sheriff stopped the BOL. Hunt disputes that he stopped it, however, the log clearly states that he did.

Thanks for the clarification Scott.
The father is a retired Sgt. from FCSO (possibly Rocky Mount but, I was told sheriff).

And.. you're right... the tape from Salem PD is sickening.

Wow...Me thinks Sheriff Hunt is not going to be Sheriff much longer.
This whole situation quite possibly could have been stopped with a BOLO with Deputy Agee being arrested and his ex still alive and the entire shootout with VSP avoided.

Could charges be filed against Sheriff Hunt?I'm pretty sure a civil suit against him is coming.

Sad situation all around.
