Details are unfolding in a strange sequence of events in Longview. Four people were hospitalized after a fire was set at a Longview apartment complex on Tuesday night.
According to the Longview Police Department, Roger Hall, 24, of Longview, entered the laundry room at Village South Apartments in the 700 block of Green Street and set fire to a pile of clothes. When another man entered and attempted to extinguish the flames, the suspect shot the man.
Hall then ran into a nearby apartment, where a husband and wife were home with their child. The child ran out of the apartment when Hall entered.
Hall shot the mother and father. A struggle ensued between Hall and the father, at which point the father wrestled the gun away from Hall. Hall pulled out a knife, which was also wrestled away by the father, who then stabbed Hall several times.
All four victims were transported to Good Shepherd Medical Center. The mother and Hall are still hospitalized.
Longview Police say charges are pending and the incident is still under investigation. The Longview Fire Department says the fire did extensive damage to the apartment's laundry room.
