2 Officers, Suspect Shot In W.Va. Highway Shootout

LEWISBURG, W.VA. — Two West Virginia police officers were injured in a New Year's Day shootout when they stopped a suspected stolen vehicle and the driver opened fire, an emergency dispatch official said.

The two Lewisburg officers, and the driver, were being treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, said Donna Hinkle, administrator of the Greenbrier County 911 center.

A second man was also arrested when he passed the scene and opened fire at the officers before he left Interstate 64 westbound and was captured about 90 minutes later in woods, Hinkle said. She said police were tipped off by a passer-by.


JUST IN: Mario Cuomo, former New York governor, dead at 82

Ever-eloquent Mario Cuomo, a son of Queens who rode his rhetorical gifts to three terms as New York governor and tantalized Democrats by flirting with a run for President, died Thursday, two sources close to the family said. He was 82.

Cuomo passed away six hours after his oldest son, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was formally sworn-in to a second term in Manhattan. The elder Cuomo was too ill with a serious heart condition to attend.

"He couldn't be here physically today ... but my father is in this room," Andrew Cuomo said in his inaugural address.

"He's in the heart and mind of every person who is here. His inspiration and his legacy and his spirit is what has brought this day to this point."
