((When Floyd County deputies pulled up to the home of Kevin and Darlene Yoders - 28 year old Roger Lee Whitlock of Check was reportedly in the driveway with a 44 caliber magnum revolver. State police say the shoot out began when Whitlock fired 6 rounds at three deputies - and the deputies returned fire. Whitlock reportedly ran back inside the home -- where deputies found both Whitlock and 30 year old Darlene Yoders of Floyd dead. Darlene's husband Kevin and their two children who were inside the house were not hurt.
