Man reportedly shoots a person, while searching for his girlfriend
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office say that officers responded to a shooting on Newhouse Branch Road, near Charleston, West Virginia, early Sunday morning.
According to a release from the sheriff’s office, Metro 911 received a call at approximately 4:15 a.m. today, stating that an individual had been shot with a firearm.
Upon arriving at the scene, deputies were met by the victim, Chad Green, 36, of Charleston, along with other eyewitnesses.
Paramedics from Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority treated Green, who suffered injuries resulting from a single shot that passed through his left arm. Green, however, refused their offer to transport him to a hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
According to law enforcement, Green was at the residence on Newhouse Branch Road when a white male in an white Chevrolet S-10 arrived asking if anyone had seen his girlfriend. The driver was told that no one had seen the woman, prompting the unidentified driver to leave in his truck.
Police say that as the driver was leaving, however, he fired several shots toward the garage — with one of the bullets striking Green.
The investigation is continuing. Deputies say they have strong leads in the case including a person of interest.
