DELBARTON — A funeral service for Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum will be held Sunday in Delbarton.

The West Virginia Sheriff’s Association says in a Facebook posting that the service will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at Mingo Central High School. A visitation is set for 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at the high school.

Chafin Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Crum was fatally shot in Williamson on Wednesday.

The suspect, 37-year-old Tennis Melvin Maynard, was shot and wounded by a Mingo County deputy following a chase. State police say the deputy shot Maynard after he pulled a weapon.
