CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WYMT/WSAZ) -- Nearly a week after the shootings near Clay, W.Va., Roane County Sheriff's Deputy John Westfall has been released from the hospital.
He was released from CAMC General in Charleston.
Westfall was shot several times this past Tuesday after he chased the gunman down near a park and ride along Interstate 79 at the Clay/Roane county line. The deadly incident claimed the lives of two West Virginia State Police officers.
Investigators say Westfall was wearing his bulletproof vest, and that's probably what saved his life.
Westfall works double duty as a deputy in Roane County and as a town police officer in Spencer, W.Va.
