BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. – Two men are dead, a third behind bars charged with murder in a Saturday afternoon shooting.
Sixty-three year-old Rodney Black called 911 saying two men were trying to break into his outbuilding and that he had shot them. When deputies arrived on scene at the home on Old Crow Drive, they found two men lying in the snow next to a pick-up truck dead.
Black allegedly used a scoped rifle to fire the shots out a window of his home.
Investigators determined that the outbuilding did not belong to Black and that the men had every right to be there.
The victim’s names have not been released.
Black was taken into custody and charged with 2 counts of first-degree murder. He’s being held at the Western Regional Jail without bail. Investigators said Black has been cooperative.
