Wanton Endangerment

On September 4th, 2008 at 2:30 AM Martinsburg Police responded to a shots fired call in the area of East Moler Ave. and North High Street. Officers initially did not locate any persons or vehicles involved in the shooting.

Later in the morning Martinsburg Detectives located the vehicle which was involved in this shooting parked in the Roberts Gardens apartment complex located outside of the city limits. The vehicle had sustained obvious recent gunshot damage from several projectiles.
The vehicle had sustained multiple areas of gunshot damage and it appeared to have been caused from at least two, possibly three different caliber weapons.

One of the two occupants believed to be in this vehicle at the time of the shooting was located and interviewed. The other occupant was identified by police. Neither of the two occupants were struck by bullets or injured in regards to this incident.

Police were able to find that the occupants of the vehicle had traveled to the area of High and Moler and parked in the alley way beside of 820 North High Street and met with several people in that area. An argument ensued with several of these people and with the passenger of this vehicle and as they were leaving several shots were fired at the vehicle and occupants.

Martinsburg Police were able to identify these subjects and warrants for Wanton Endangerment were obtained by Det Lt. GB Swartwood and Det Cpl. S Doyle from State Magistrate Joan Bragg.

Martinsburg Police have arrested four individuals on said warrants in regards to this incident. The investigation is ongoing and it is possible that another arrest may be forthcoming.
