CNN) -- Two West Virginia officers were shot and wounded Thursday in a traffic stop on Interstate 64 that led to the discovery of two bodies.

According to state police Lt. Michael Baylous, two police officers from the town of Lewisburg pulled over a white Chevrolet SUV with North Carolina plates after learning it had been reported stolen.

As the officers were conducting the traffic stop, a red Chevrolet truck pulled alongside them and the driver "pulled a handgun and shot at both officers," Baylous said.

    The drivers of both Chevrolets then fled: the red truck "went over the hillside and was eventually taken into custody," while the other motorist "drove behind a guardrail on the interstate and hid for a short amount of time," according to Baylous.

    "Eventually, he walked up to the interstate and turned himself into law enforcement without incident."

    Neither driver has been named, but they informed police that they were father and son.

    When police searched the red truck allegedly being driven by dad, they found two "recently deceased bodies" hidden under a mattress. "It is believed that the victims are from North Carolina," Baylous said.

    Baylous said, "the two suspects will be arrested for malicious assault and attempted murder of a police officer."

    The officers -- who also have not been named -- were taken to Greenbrier Valley Medical Center. Their conditions were not immediately known Thursday night

    I wonder if their violence towards police had anything to do with the recent string of protests nationwide they should look into that.

    A Texas father and son went on a multi-state crime spree Thursday, robbing and killing a couple in North Carolina before transporting the bodies to West Virginia, where they shot two officers, police say.

    Eric Campbell, 21, and his father, 54-year-old Edward Campbell -- both of Indian Acres, Texas -- were pulled over in Lewisburg, West Virginia on Thursday afternoon, according to the New York Daily News. They were in separate cars, one of which police flagged as stolen. Edward Campbell, who was driving a red truck at the time, allegedly opened fire on two officers, wounding both of them. Cops returned fire and hit the suspect in the leg.

    Edward fled, but was later collared as he hid in the woods. Eric turned himself in about 90 minutes after the shootout. Both wounded officers are expected to survive.

    Upon further investigation, cops found the bodies of Jerome Faulkner, 73, and his 62-year-old wife, Dora, under a mattress in the bed of the red pickup truck, WVNS reports.

    Investigators believe the Campbells chose the couple at random to rob and murder in their Oak Hill, North Carolina home. The suspects allegedly lit the house on fire at about 7 a.m., threw the bodies in the back of the truck and drove nearly four hours to West Virginia.

    "When we first got the call, we thought it was just a structure fire," Granville County, North Carolina Sheriff Brindell Wilkins told WVNS. "As things progressed, we found some things here that didn't look right."

    Both of the suspects were charged with malicious assault and attempted murder of an officer. Eric Campbell, whose mugshot is above, was held without bail at the Southern Regional Jail in West Virginia, while his father is still hospitalized with a bullet wound to the leg.

    The officers, identified as Jeromy Dove and Nicholas Sams, are recovering with superficial wounds from the shooting.

    Cops are somehow miraculously able to apprehend armed white suspects without using deadly force...


    But, feel compelled to shoot and ? unarmed black teens because they have no other options.


    Strange.
