A Calhoun man,  John Dale CYRUS died of multiple gunshot wounds, apparently after being chased into a dead-end hollow a few miles from Big Bend on Tripett Run, a short distance from Yellow Creek Road.

A 911 caller at 6:40 p.m. that Wednesday, said gunshots had been fired in her driveway, and the shooter was still in his vehicle.

Sheriff Allen Parsons, first on-scene, ordered the man to surrender, after which he exited the car and gave himself up.

Sheriff Allen Parsons with Shot Gun was at the scene within minutes and captured Husk!

Prosecutor Rocky Holmes told The Parkersburg News that …

“Husk told investigators he grabbed his 9 mm pistol and shot Cyrus three times while he remained seated in his vehicle!”

Holmes said it appears Husk’s actions were premeditated, based on statements from witnesses, according to the paper, and that Husk’s assertion of being punched by Cyrus did not jive with eyewitness accounts and some evidence.

Holmes told the paper that Husk made statements that implied he was planning to kill Cyrus. He also said an eyewitness saw the two men wrestling for the gun before Cyrus was shot.

The prosecutor says that there was a lack of physical evidence to support the claim that Husk was punched in the head by Cyrus several times.

Cyrus’ hands showed no redness, bruising or swelling that would indicate striking Husk. Holmes said officials were testing Cyrus’ ring for Husk’s DNA.

According to a report in the Hur Herald…

Neighbors of the rural hollow, which has a half-dozen houses, said the vehicles driven by the shooter and victim passed through at a high-rate of speed just prior to the shooting.

Thomas Lee Husk, 46, a former Jesses Run resident who now lives on Sugar Camp, a short distance from the shooting on Trippett Road, has been charged with the shooting.

A criminal complaint says that Husk was going to his residence on Sugar Camp when he discovered John Dale Cyrus blocking his drive-way. Cyrus’ ex-wife since 2006 was reportedly in Husk’s car, in addition to other family members.

Husk stated that he kept going up the road approximately two miles, according to the criminal complaint, and stopped at the dead-end of Trippett Road, with Cyrus following him.

Neighbors on Trippett Rd. reported two vehicles driving up the hollow at a high rate of speed. About six families live along the short stretch of highway.

Husk, according to the criminal complaint, said “Cyrus jumped out of his vehicle, walked up to Husk’s vehicle, and began punching Tom Husk in the face.”

“Husk, while seated in his vehicle grabbed his 9mm pistol and shot Cyrus three times, killing him. Husk stated that he and Cyrus had been arguing for some time about Husk residing with Cyrus’ ex-wife, and Cyrus’ daughter being married to Husk’s son,” said the complaint.

Both Husk and Cyrus reportedly had concealed weapons permits.

Three occupants of the Husk vehicle, including Husk’s girlfriend, Cyrus’ ex-wife, an adult woman and a 15-month-old baby, fled into the nearby house for safety.
