HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A man is dead after a shooting Tuesday evening in Huntington.

It happened just after 5 p.m. Tuesday at a home along 27th Street in East Huntington.

Huntington Police said Robert Crutcher, 44, died at St. Mary’s Medical Center a short time after receiving a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Police plan to arrest James Lee Johnson, 25, of Michigan, and charge him with one count of murder in the shooting after he is released from Cabell Huntington Hospital. He is being treated for head injuries.

Police believe at this time the victim, suspect and a third person were arguing in an upstairs bedroom at the home before the shooting took place.

The investigation is ongoing.

    Little Chi-troit. A broke, liberal, armpit, operated by (d)'s and a cesspool of inner-city entitlement trash. The liberals are doing their part to maintain WV's world-wide reputation - barefoot hicks.

    See, guns don't kill people. Thugs from Michigan kill people.....At least in Huntington, that is.



    Good one.

        I bet they were having a spirited debate about NSA information collection and things just got out of hand.

    I don't suppose that is Detroit, Michigan?!

      I'm guessing he wasn't from the UP.
