A Wise County Sheriff’s Office K-9 was shot and killed in the line of duty Wednesday afternoon in Montague County. Sheriff David Walker said his officers were assisting Montague County Sheriff’s Office in a pursuit when Pepper, one of the department’s two dogs, was shot by the suspect.

Walker said Montague County sheriff’s deputies and Bowie police officers tried to stop a man they knew had warrants. He fled and there was a pursuit that ended in the area of Pickett Run Road and Aujla Road near Sunset. The suspect fled into a nearby wooded area, and Pepper, a tracking dog, was used to find the suspect hiding under a pile of leaves.

Walker said the suspect opened fire on the dog and officers. Officers returned fire and killed the suspect, a 44-year-old male. Walker said he has not yet been positively identified.

The sheriff said Pepper saved the life of at least five officers. No other officers were injured.

The Department of Public Safety also assisted in the pursuit.

Weatherford College Wise County library dedication to honor Eatons http://www.wcmessenger.com/2015/news/weatherford-college-wise-county-library-dedication-to-honor-eatons/ http://www.wcmessenger.com/2015/news/weatherford-college-wise-county-library-dedication-to-honor-eatons/#comments Wed, 28 Jan 2015 18:58:28 +0000 http://www.wcmessenger.com/?p=86475 The public is invited to a dedication reception for the Roy and Jeannine Eaton Library and Research Center at the Weatherford College Wise County campus Thursday, Jan. 29.

The come-and-go reception runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

College officials said the Eaton family has dedicated a great deal of time and resources to ensure the success of WC in Wise County.

“I have come to know the Eatons as true friends of K-12 and higher education in Wise County and beyond,” said Dr. Matt Joiner, associate dean for instructional services at WCWC. “Simply stated, Weatherford College’s presence in Wise County would not have been possible without the visionary leadership of folks like Roy in the late 1990s.”

Roy was a member of the steering committee that investigated the need for a branch campus in Wise County and supported construction of the WCWC facility. The Eatons have also donated more than $50,000 for scholarships.

Roy is a longtime member of the WC Foundation board of directors.

“Roy and Jeannine Eaton have been pillars of Wise County for decades,” said Dr. Kevin Eaton, WC president. “They worked tirelessly to get the branch campus initiative on the ballot and then supported the initiative financially with a large contribution.

“I am honored to know the Eatons and extremely proud to share our last name [although they are not related]. They truly embody the philosophy of leading by example.”
