Update: Revived man who attacked paramedics caught

Updated: Wednesday, September 3 2014, 06:17 PM EDT
BROOKE COUNTY, W.Va. - After a manhunt that lasted more than 2 hours, police have found a man who allegedly attacked paramedics who had just revived him from an overdose, then fled Wednesday afternoon on the West Virginia side of the Ohio River right along the railroad tracks near the Market Street Bridge.
Members of the Steubenville Police Department and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office located the man -- Scott Gill -- in Steubenville. It is not known how he crossed the river.
After a friend located Gill behind railroad ties in deteriorating condition along the railroad tracks and called 911, Gill was administered Narcan, a drug commonly used in the event of an overdose. Revived, Gill began to attack a paramedic and an EMT and fled into the woods.
Neither emergency responder suffered significant injury.
"After he got behind the wall, I seen him fighting with one of the ambulance guys ," witness James Hall said. "And when the cops got down there, he took off running..."
Officials said the drug Narcan is only a temporary solution to the overdose and his life could have still have been in jeopardy had he not been located and administered more help.
Gill is in custody on his way to the Jefferson County Jail and will face battery charges, at the least.
