      Newspaper Article:

      STONEVILLE - A man was fatally shot by Rockingham County deputies early Sunday morning in front of his wife and children.

      Law enforcement did not immediately identify the man, but his father and a long-time friend identified the man as Todd Burroughs, 38, of Stoneville.

      Two deputies were patrolling north of Stoneville about 1:50 a.m. when they spotted a pickup truck behind a business, said Scott Williams, special agent in charge with the State Bureau of Investigation. Williams did not know the location or name of the business.

      Thinking the truck looked suspicious, the deputies tried to pull it over. When the truck didn't stop, they followed it for several miles with their blue lights on, Williams said.

      The truck stopped in a driveway on Garrett Road. Williams said the driver got out and struggled with the deputies.
      The man was shot by the deputies and died at the scene, Williams said. The SBI agent declined to say if he was armed.

      One of the deputies was treated at a hospital for undisclosed injuries. He had not been shot, and authorities said his wounds are not life-threatening.
      The SBI said it won?t make public the names of the deputies until agents interview both men.

      Burroughs' father, Bruce Burroughs, and Burroughs' friend, J.W. Shough, confirmed Todd Burroughs' death Sunday and provided more details.

      Bruce Burroughs said his grandchildren, who were in the truck, recounted for him what happened.
      Bruce Burroughs and Shough said the family - Todd Burroughs, his wife Rebekah, and two of their children, ages 10 and 9 - were coming home from a wedding early Sunday.

      According to Bruce Burroughs, Todd Burroughs pulled into the driveway of his home and got out of the pickup truck. The deputies used a stun gun and pepper spray to subdue him.

      When Todd Burroughs took a bottle of water from his truck to help ease the effects of the pepper spray, the deputies ordered him to drop it. Burroughs' dog got between him and the deputies and was shot, then Burroughs was shot. The dog also died from its wounds.

      A later call to the SBI seeking comment on this version of events was not returned. A call to Burroughs' wife also was not returned.

      "I'm trying to figure out some way to make sense out of it, and there?s no way to make any sense out of it," Bruce Burroughs said. "I lost my oldest boy two years ago from diabetes complications and that was a hard one to get over. I?m not sure I?m going to get over this one."
