Second man arrested in connection with Beckley shooting

A second man has been arrested in connection with a Saturday night shooting that led to the death of a Beckley man, according to the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office.



Antonio LeJune Wade, 28, of Beckley, is charged with unlawful possession of a deadly weapon by a convicted felon.



Sheriff Steve Tanner said Wade’s charges are not directly related to the murder, but did stem from the murder investigation.



Wade, Dominic Paige, 22, and an unidentified juvenile were leaving a house on Cohen Street and were attempting to turn their vehicle around in the driveway of a residence occupied by 54-year-old Danny Kennedy, according to police.



Police say the vehicle got stuck and a verbal dispute ensued among the three and Kennedy. Paige then allegedly shot Kennedy, who was transported to an area hospital and later died, police said.



Deputies located Paige and took him into custody Sunday. Police are still searching for the juvenile, who will face murder charges when found.



Tanner said the juvenile has connections in the Beckley area and also out of state. He is asking anyone with further information about this crime to call 304-255-9300. Anonymous tips can be reported to Crime Stoppers at 304-255-STOP.
