WILLIAMSON - Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum has been shot and killed in downtown Williamson right by the underpass on Harvey Street.
Crum was in his vehicle, witnesses say, when a male drove up to a parking lot on 3rd Avenue, exited his vehicle, walked to Crum’s SUV, and shot him point blank.
Law enforcement officers were in pursuit of a suspect near Delbarton soon after the shooting.
Mingo County courthouse officials and emergency service personnel were obviously shaken at the scene of the shooting.
The Williamson Daily News will continue to update the story as details become available.
