WATCH Bodies Found in West Virginia Shootout Suspects' Car

Police from two states are working to piece together a series of crimes that included a house burned down, a stolen truck containing the bodies of an elderly couple, a shootout with police, and a car chase.

Police in West Virginia pulled over Eric Campbell, 21, on New Year's Day for driving a North Carolina truck that was registered as stolen.

His father, Edward Campbell, 54, was driving in a different vehicle and pulled over in front of the police when he saw his son being approached by the officers.

Edward "came back there to where [the highway patrol officers] were at, and when they asked him for identification, he pulled a pistol and started shooting," West Virginia's Lewisburg Police Chief Tim Stover told ABC News.

The bodies of two North Carolina residents, 73-year-old Jerome Faulkner and his wife, 62-year-old Dora Faulkner, were found in suspect Eric Campbell's truck after he was pulled over by police officers in West Virginia.

Stover identified the two officers to the Associated Press, saying that Lt. Jeromy Dove was grazed in the back of his neck while Patrolman Nicholas Sams suffered shrapnel in his forehead.

Edward Campbell fell to the ground after being shot in the leg by one of the officers, Stover said.

The younger Campbell got out of the allegedly stolen truck and ran into his father's vehicle and drove away, police said. Other officers pursued Eric Campbell. At one point, he stopped the truck and ran into nearby woods, but surrendered when surrounded by cops.

When police looked inside the truck left behind by the son, they found the bodies of an elderly couple, who have been identified as Jerome Faulkner, 73, and his wife, Dora Faulkner, 62, according to the AP.

The home of Jerome Faulkner, 73, and his wife Dora, 62, located northwest of Oxford, N.C. was burned to the ground.

The Faulkner's home in Granville, North Carolina, had been burned down earlier that day.

Police have yet to determine whether the Campbells knew the Faulkners. Stover said the Campbells are from Alvin, Texas.

Edward Campbell is being treated in a Charleston hospital for his gunshot wound while his son is being held in Southern Regional Jail in Beckley.

Both men face two counts of attempted murder of a police officer and two counts of malicious assault on a police officer.

Stover told ABC that the Campbells will have their preliminary hearing scheduled in the next 10 days but no date has been set.
