Martinsburg police shoot, kill Stephen City resident

March 14th, 2013

According to a Martinsburg City Police news release, 50 year old Wayne Arnold Jones of the 100 block of Clearwater Court in Stephen City, Virginia refused to cooperate with police around 11:45pm, March 13th in downtown Martinsburg.

After two tazer attempts failed, Jones was forced to the ground. That’s when, according to the news release, he pulled a knife and stabbed one of the police officers.

Police then backed off Jones, and when he again refused to comply, he was shot and killed.

At least five Martinsburg City Police officers are on paid administrative leave, and the West Virginia State Police are handling the investigation.

The incident happened in the 100 block of South Queen Street.

The stabbed officer did not require medical attention, according to the news release.
