Two cops shot by suspect they pulled over - only to find he had the bodies of elderly couple in his truck after 'killing them and burning their house down in home invasion'

cops

  • Lewisburg, West Virginia police pulled over a white SUV around 4pm
  • The driver of a red truck, working in tandem with the first, drove past the scene and opened fire on the officers
  • Both suspects fled--who some reports say were father and son--fled but were soon taken into custody
  • A search of the red truck uncovered two dead bodies in the back under a mattress
  • The bodies have been identified as the husband and wife victims of a North Carolina home invasion--the stolen SUV belonged to the couple

Two West Virginia police officers were injured in a New Year's Day shootout that ended with two suspects in custody and the discovery of two dead bodies in the back of their truck.

The bizarre encounter began when Lewisburg officers pulled over a suspected stolen vehicle--identified as a white SUV.

Initial accounts said the SUV driver opened fire first. What's clear is that, during the stop, a red truck pulled past the officers and opened fire then pulled away was captured about 90 minutes later in woods.

According to the Charleston Gazette, the driver of the red truck was the other driver's father. A search of the father's truck would reveal what likely made the duo so desperate: two dead bodies under a mattress.

Donna Hinkle, administrator of the Greenbrier County 911 center, said the shooting occurred about 4 p.m. outside Lewisburg.

One of the officers was grazed by a bullet. The other was wearing a protective vest that saved him from serious injury. The impact did leave him with an injured rib cage.

'Neither one of their injuries, we've found out, are going to be life-threatening,' Hinkle 

She said the first vehicle had a stolen North Carolina tag. The victims in the truck were subsequently identified as a Granville County, North Carolina couple.

One of the officers was grazed by a bullet. The other was wearing a protective vest that saved him from serious injury. The impact did leave him with an injured rib cage. The dead couple in the truck were Jerome Faulkner, 73, and his wife Dora, 62, whose North Carolina house was had previously been found into and burned

Granville County, North Carolina Sheriff Brindel B. Wilkins Jr. told WOWK the couple were Jerome Faulkner, 73, and his wife Dora, 62.

Wilkins said the couple's home near Oak Hill, North Carolina had been invaded by the men then set on fire.

The father and son allegedly then stole the couple's SUV, which was identified a license plate recognition program at some point as they traveled through West Virginia, leading to the police encounter.

Police Thursday night were not sure what made the suspects target the Faulkners nor if the couple was killed during the home invasion or sometime after.

Adding further mystery to the case was the revelation that the father and son suspects had come from Texas. 

Now Texas, North Carolina and West Virginia authorities are working together to sort out what exactly led to this tragedy.

The suspects were to be arrested for malicious assault and attempted murder of a police officer in Greenbrier County, reports WVVA.
