VANSANT, Va. - A small southwestern Virginia community is dealing with a deadly shooting rampage that has killed two deputies and wounded two more before the suspect, who may have been trying to rob a salvage yard, was fatally shot by authorities.

Virginia State Police say Buchanan County deputies investigating at Roger's Service Center in Vansant on Sunday afternoon were met by gunfire from long range. Two were hit and died at the scene. State Police Sgt. Steve Lowe says two others who arrived also were shot.

State police say one deputy has life-threatening injuries and the other was in serious condition. No names were released late Sunday.

Lowe says state police and other officers found the suspect about two hours later and after "some sort of engagement" they shot and killed him.
