“Someone called the 911 and said there were people shooting in the parking lot,” reported Farley.

He added that police discovered the victim’s body when they arrived around 9:30 or 10 p.m.

He urged anyone with information to contact him at 304-256-1708 or to call Crime Stoppers at 304-255-STOP (7867).
