Sheriff: Shooting in Abingdon Justified
Law officers say it appears a homeowner in Abingdon was justified in shooting a neighbor to defend himself. Sheriff Fred Newman says the shooting happened at a home in the 18000 of Keeneland Drive. A neighbor confronted another homeowner in an attempt to get in and “provoke” a fight. A few minutes later, the neighbor returned, knocking on the back door. The sheriff says the homeowner answered and during an attempted intrusion, he shot and wounded the neighbor. The person shot is expected to live. The sheriff has not identified those involved and no word yet of charges filed. (LM)

Train Kills Two; Missing Boy Found Okay
Authorities say it was a westbound Norfolk Southern freight train…rounding a curve just 33-hundred feet before a trestle at a speed of about 45 miles an hour…that hit and killed 52-yearold Louis Perry of Chilhowie and his granddaughter, 6-year-old Neveah Fields of Abingdon. Miraculously, a 7 year old boy apparently with them as they fished waterway below the trestle, managed to drop down and survive. Railway spokesman Robin Chapman says trestles are marked for no trespassing. He says the train sounded a horn as soon as the engineer saw the people and applied emergency brakes but it was too late. “The train is approaching, you don’t always hear it when it is right on you, particularly coming around a curve,” he said.
