During the early morning hours of 9-6-2020, Detectives with the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office were able to identify the suspect responsible for the shooting that occurred at the Shady Spring Dollar General late on 9-5-2020. The suspect was located at the Maxine Apartments in the Crab Orchard area of Raleigh County. Upon attempting to interview the suspect, the suspect barricaded himself inside the apartment with a firearm. The Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office Special Response team was called in for assistance. Through negotiations, the suspect’s wife and children were removed from the apartment. Negotiations with the suspect eventually failed, and he shot himself. The suspect was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. The names of those involved are being withheld at this time pending notification of family.
