Man Killed in Shootout with Sheriff's Deputies
Two Kanawha County deputies were called to a home at 6154 Quick Road near Pinch Saturday around 5pm about a domestic dispute. Deputies saw a 45 year old man through a window who appeared to be trying to hide, but eventually he opened the front door and fired at the deputies, who returned the fire. The suspect, Lawrence Edward “Pete” Vaughn was killed, but neither deputy was hurt. The initial call said there was a violent altercation between the son and his mother, but she was not hurt. Cpl. BD Humphreys with the Sheriff's Office says family members at the scene indicated Vaughn had been violent with his mother before. A full investigation is underway.
