Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: WV   USA   Sun. Sep. 13, 2009
Summary: Patrolman Jerry Jones was accidentally shot and killed by another officer following a pursuit which culminated with the suspect ramming several patrol cars.

Patrolman Jones was on patrol when he spotted a vehicle that had been involved in an earlier hit and run accident. Patrolman Jones attempted to stop the vehicle at the east end of Charleston, but the suspect failed to stop and a pursuit began. He was joined by three other officers who pursued the car to an area on Quick Road. The driver then used his truck as a weapon hitting the police cruisers at full throttle. The driver then turned the truck around in the space where he was cornered, and once again rammed the police cars being used as barricades.

The officers, believing they were in grave danger, opened fire on the suspect. The gunfire struck the suspect, but the crossfire also hit Patrolman Jones above his body armor, below his neck. The suspect and Patrolman Jones were both fatally wounded.

Patrolman Jones was transported to CAMC General where he succumbed to his wounds.

Patrolman Jones was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Charleston Police Department for three years. He is survived by his wife.p
