One person in custody after shooting

BLUEWELL — One man was in custody Friday after a shooting was reported at a Littlesburg Road home.

Troopers responded at approximately 5 p.m. to a call about shots fired at a Littlesburg Road home, said Trooper B.R. Wood of the West Virginia State Police Princeton detachment.

“One caucasian female suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center and flown to a Charleston Area Medical Center,” Wood said. “But she is in good condition. She was transported due to the trauma center there.”

One adult male was taken into custody and charged with malicious wounding, unlawful restraint, and domestic battery, Wood said. Wood declined to release the suspect’s name, but said he would be held at the Southern Regional Jail in Beaver until he could be arraigned Saturday.

The incident occurred inside a home and a handgun was recovered, Wood said.
