4 of 6 Huntington shooting victims released from hospital

HUNTINGTON — Huntington police are investigating a shooting at a housing complex that left six people injured.

Lt. John Williams says the shooting occurred around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Williams tells The Herald-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1baIO3g ) that shots were fired during an altercation among a group of people at the Northcott Court complex. Police believe one person fired the shots. But the possibility of a second shooter hasn’t been ruled out.

He says all six victims were shot in the lower extremities. None of the injuries are life-threatening and the newspaper reported that by late morning four of the six had been released from the hospital.

Williams said the incident occurred during an altercation among a group of those at the public housing complex, located near Hal Greer Boulevard and Charleston Avenue.

Investigators combed through surveillance video from the housing complex late Tuesday. Williams told the Herald-Dispatch that the footage shows a group of males standing in the center court beforehand. There was no audio with the video, but Williams said the shooting is clear.
