JONBEN, W.Va. (AP) -

The Raleigh County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death of a Jonben man who allegedly fired a shot at deputies before he was killed by return fire.

The deadly exchange occurred Friday when deputies said 46-year-old Charles Warren Wickline fired at them, according to media reports.

The officers went to Wickline's home on Thursday and he fled. Deputies said they found him early Friday and he took cover behind a tree and fired the shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Wickline was on home confinement as a condition of bond on a charge of child neglect resulting in death.

He was arrested in July 2012 after allegedly backing a vehicle over a 13-month-old boy.
