CHARLESTON, W.Va. Feb 12 2018
A Charleston Police Officer was shot at CAMC General Saturday afternoon.
According to Public Information Officer Lt. Autumn Davis, shortly after 2:30 a prisoner was being guarded in the hospital by Montgomery Police.
That prisoner escaped custody, and Charleston Police were called to assist.
One Charleston Officer was helping subdue the suspect, and they ended up in the alley behind the hospital.
Police say a struggle ensued there, and that prisoner was able to get the Montgomery Officer’s gun, shooting the Charleston Police Officer.
Police say that officer is doing just fine. They add this is the second time in two and a half months that a Charleston Police Officer has been shot during a scuffle.
Police tell WSAZ the prisoner involved in Saturday’s situation is back in custody.
That prisoner is identified as Brian Ogle, a fugitive from justice wanted out of Tennessee.
Police say Ogle was apprehended about four days ago after a vehicle pursuit.
Lt. Davis adds he was taken to CAMC General as a precaution following his arrest, and was being guarded.
Lt. Davis says at this point it’s not clear what charges Ogle could possibly face.
Brian Ogle is currently in the hospital, and is still being guarded.
