UPDATE 12/3 10:40 a.m.: The Virginia State Police announced their Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Field Office in Salem will be investigating the officer-involved shooting in Henry Co.

Troopers say the shooting happened when a white 1999 Buick LeSabre pulled over on the northbound Route 220 on-ramp. They have identified the driver as 57-year-old, Donald W. Hodges of Basset Va. Hodges exited the Buick with a hunting rifle and began to shoot at a vehicle as it passed him. VSP says the vehicle was struck but the driver was uninjured. A pickup truck drove by and Hodges fired again striking the driver.

State Police say within seconds a deputy pulled up, engaged Hodges, and fired at him. Hodges was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting. Troopers reported the driver of the truck was transported to Sovah Health Martinsville for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The deputy was not injured in the shooting.
