Oak Hill, West Virginia: An off-duty nurse saved the lives of two police officers who were attacked with a powdered substance. An officer made a traffic stop and two suspects ran away. He chased them as a second officer arrived to assist; one of the suspects was caught and reportedly reached into his pocket and ripped open a bag, believed to be narcotics, and threw it into the faces of both officers. One of the officers suddenly collapsed and began to actively overdose and the second also showed symptoms of overdose. An off-duty nurse helped administer NARCAN, which was what saved the lives of both officers. The suspect, Keith Deshon Adams, is currently in custody and is charged with Attempted Murder. The other suspect got away. This crime is disturbing because people can be easily poisoned and killed by exposure to illegal drugs that are being smuggled across the border into the US.

The quick thinking of an off-duty nurse saved the lives of two West Virginia police officers on Tuesday night.

WBOY’s sister station in Beckley, WVNS, first reported on Tuesday night that two officers were hit in the face with an unknown substance after a pursuit. Fayette County Sheriff Mike Fridley released the following update about the incident Wednesday morning.

Around 6 p.m. on September 27, 2022, an officer with the Oak Hill Police Department stopped a car near C. Adam Toney Tires. When the officer was near the car, the driver and passenger ran away toward US Rt 19. The officer initially caught one of the suspects. When he did, the suspect reportedly attacked the officer. The other suspect continued to run.

A second officer arrived to assist the first officer. During the struggle between the officers and the suspect, the suspect reportedly reached into his pocket and ripped open a bag, believed to be narcotics, and threw it into the faces of both officers.

Bystanders nearby managed to stop and help the officers in arresting the subject, when one of the officers suddenly collapsed and began to actively overdose.

Shortly after, the second officer began to show similar symptoms. An off-duty nurse helped administer NARCAN, which was what saved the lives of both officers.

The two officers were taken to Plateau Medical Center and were cleared late last night, September 27, 2022. The second person in the car who continued running is still at large and is considered a person of interest in need of questioning.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Department Detective’s Bureau was called out to investigate the incident.

The suspect, Keith Deshon Adams, of North Carolina, is currently in custody at CAMC while waiting for his arraignment for Attempted Murder charges in Fayette County.

“Actively overdose”…..? WTF is that? Actively stop breathing?

If on a jury I would find the “suspect” innocent. It seems to me that the 2 thugs in blue were about to kidnap this man, for no reason and all he did was defend himself.

Charges of attempted kidnapping against the thugs in blue would seem more appropriate.
