Henry County, Virginia

From Roanoke’s WDBJ7 of April 3, 2007

No criminal charges in shooting death of Henry County man

William Perdue was shot eight times on the morning of August 13th. At the time, Henry County deputies declined to file criminal charges, saying it was a case of self-defense. But Perdue’s mother demanded further review.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Bob Bushnell says a State Police investigation now also backs up the self-defense claim.

Investigators say Perdue had been drinking alcohol and using cocaine the night before and the morning of the shooting. He also threatened several people with a gun before the shooting.
