GLADE SPRING, Va. (WJHL) — Virginia State Police (VSP) identified a man who allegedly shot at police officers and died after Washington County deputies returned fire Tuesday night, according to Washington County, Virginia Sheriff Blake Andis.

Travis W. Fields, 39, of Lebanon, Virginia, was located deceased around 20 yards away at the edge of the woods and a handgun was recovered at the scene, says VSP.
