Sheriff Eugene Crum was shot and killed near the Mingo County Courthouse in Williamson at about noon. Sheriff Crum was eating lunch in his vehicle while conducting surveillance on a suspected illegal pharmaceutical operation. A vehicle pulled alongside and a subject exited the vehicle and shot Sheriff Crum four times at point-blank range.

The suspect fled the scene and crashed during the pursuit near Hell Creek. He was shot after pointing a firearm at a pursuing Mingo County deputy and was then apprehended.

Sheriff Crum had served as sheriff of Mingo County since January. He had previously served as a magistrate for 12 years and also with the Delbarton Police Department. He is survived by his children and grandchildren.
