Police say a 10-year-old girl was fatally shot on Pentacre Road in Quick on Sunday. The girl and a 9-year-old boy were shooting targets with a shotgun when the girl was accidentally shot in the chest and arm.

QUICK, W.Va. — A 10-year-old girl was shot and killed Sunday in Kanawha County in what police say was an accidental shooting involving another child.

A 911 call was made around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, reporting that the girl was accidentally shot while she and a 9-year-old boy were “target practicing” with a shotgun in Quick, according to dispatchers.

The girl received injuries to her chest and arm and underwent surgery at CAMC General Hospital, where she died overnight.

The shooting happened near a creek bank in the 3800 block of Pentacre Road.

The names of the two minors were not released by Monday evening, and the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating.

Police confirmed that the two children were not siblings.

On December 22, 2013 at approximately 5:30 p.m. a shooting was reported in the 3800 block of Pentacre Road near Quick, Kanawha County WV. A caller reported to Metro 911 that a nine year old and ten year old were target practicing with a 410 shotgun near a creek when the ten year old was accidentally shot. The ten year old female received injuries to her arm and chest.

Medics were dispatched along with Kanawha County Sheriff’s Deputies. Local volunteer fire department members also responded to render aid.

She was transported from the scene by personal vehicle until a responding ambulance with the Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority met them along the route. HealthNet launched a helicopter to assist with transport, but was cancelled when the ambulance was determined to be the fastest mode of transportation and continued to Charleston Area Medical Center’s General Division Hospital with the patient.

The patient was taken into surgery upon arrival. The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office will not likely issue further updates on the condition of the victim.

Killed – Robert Crutcher (Huntington, WV)

Huntington police officers have identified the victim in Tuesday’s shooting as 44-year-old Robert Crutcher. The Huntington Police Department said he died from his injuries at the hospital on Tuesday evening. Officers found him in an upstairs bedroom on 27th Street just after 5 p.m. Crutcher had a gunshot wound to the chest. He was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center where he died a short time later, according to investigators.

The suspect in the shooting has been identified as 25-year-old James Lee Johnson of Michigan. After the shooting, Johnson showed up at Cabell Huntington Hospital seeking treatment for head injuries, police said.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — Just a week before he was supposed to go on trial for murder, James Johnson has made a plea in the case.

The shooting happened on December 17, 2013, on 27th Street in Huntington.

Police say Johnson, 26, of Huntington, shot Robert Crutcher, 44, in the upper body.

Crutcher was taken to the hospital but did not survive.

Investigators say it appears Crutcher, Johnson and several other men were in an upstairs bedroom at Crutcher’s home when they got into an argument. That’s when they say Crutcher told Johnson to leave, and Johnson pulled out a pistol and shot him.

In court this week, Johnson pleaded no contest to second degree murder and received a 30-year prison sentence.

Killed – David Bailey (Princeton, WV)

David Bailey1

A bar fight turned deadly early Sunday morning on Courthouse Road.

Mercer County Sheriff’s Department Det. Cpl. L.B. Murphy reported that one man died in a dispute in the parking lot of Club Maximus, just outside Princeton city limit.

Morrisettie Legget, 32, of Bluefield, has been arrested on charges of first-degree murder in the incident.

Murphy said MCSD’s Deputies G.C. Paitsel and C.K. Lester received a report of a shooting at approximately 3:30 a.m., sending the officers to the scene outside Club Maximus. The officers found the victim lying in the parking lot near the nightclub, with several bystanders attempting to render first aid.

PRINCETON — Sobs tore through David Bailey’s family members as the jury declared his shooter not guilty of murder or manslaughter.

The verdict arrived at approximately 6:30 p.m. Thursday, after three intense days of jury selection, testimony and arguments.

When the decision arrived, Circuit Judge Derek Swope had a full array of Mercer County Sheriff’s deputies on hand to help keep passions calm on both sides of the case.

•••
Two days into the trial involving a 2013 Princeton murder, the defense worked Wednesday to paint Morrisettie Leggett, 33, of Bluefield, as a model citizen, a caring father and a good little league football coach. Attorneys David Kelley and John “Jay” Williams argued Leggett fired five .38-caliber revolver rounds in David Bailey’s direction out of a legitimate fear for his life.

Meanwhile, Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ash emphasized that Bailey, although intoxicated and looking for a fistfight outside Club Maximus Dec. 8, 2013, was unarmed and approximately 75 pounds lighter than the man standing trial for his fatal shooting.
