Man Shot By Deputies In July Will Stand Trial In January

An Oak Run man who recovered from being shot by sheriff’s deputies has pled not guilty to charges against him. Detectives say that on July 5th, 33-year old Christopher Maddox was driving towards Mineral School Road when he encountered two victims, a 51-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman, who were taking out their trash. Maddox reportedly blocked their vehicle and threatened them with a rifle before they were able to drive away and call 9-1-1. Maddox continued toward his home and he crashed on the side of the road, then confronted four other people including his mother, his great uncle, and his roommate’s girlfriend. He allegedly fired his rifle towards his roommate, who then fled. A CHP helicopter crew was able to see Maddox and it appeared he was holding the victims hostage. He refused to surrender and was shot by arriving deputies. A jury trial is set for January 9th. Maddox was on probation at the time of the alleged crimes, and he’s being held without bail
