SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A West Virginia state police sergeant has been recognized a year after he was wounded in a shooting.
Sgt. David Fry was presented with the Purple Heart and Medal of Valor at a ceremony Wednesday at state police headquarters in South Charleston.
Fry tried to enter a Lincoln County apartment to intervene in a domestic situation in March 2017. He was shot in the shoulder and wrist and missed eight months of work.
A suspect has pleaded not guilty to attempted first-degree murder, malicious wounding, strangulation and wanton endangerment.
