At approximately 3:25 a.m. on Nov. 17, officers of the Morgantown Police Department responded to a report of shots fired near the intersection of Chestnut Street and Wall Street.
As a result of the investigation, the Morgantown Police Department determined that a group of individuals were involved in a verbal altercation at the 4th and Goal bar located on Walnut Street. The group left the location and walked towards the Chestnut Street parking garage. The victim was waiting for his friend to bring the car around for them to leave the area. While waiting, a silver colored Ford Flex, being operated by a tall, heavy set black male, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, stopped the vehicle, got out and shot the victim in the arm. The victim fled the scene and was later treated at Ruby Memorial Hospital for a single gunshot wound to his arm and was released. The suspect fled the area in the silver Ford Flex.
The victim’s identity is not being released at this time.
This was not a random act and the case is being investigated by the Morgantown Police Department Detective Unit. Anyone with information may contact the Detectives Unit at 304-284-7454, or call the Morgantown Police Department TIPS Line to make an anonymous tip at 304-284-7520.
