— 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 being charged with unlawful possession of a deadly weapon by a convicted felon.

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