[SUPER=03-Christiansburg/May 9;]

Two sheriff's deputies and a Christiansburg police officer shot and killed 21-year-old Christopher Holmes May ninth, after HE shot and killed another officer. Special prosecutor Randy Leach says based on the investigation by state police, the officers were justified in shooting Holmes, who attacked and killed Christiansburg police officer Scott Hylton. Hylton was responding to a call of a shoplifting suspect, when Holmes pulled him out of his car and began beating him.
Leach says Holmes was high on cocaine and alcohol, which led to his quote "explosive actions."
