Victims identified in Martinsburg fatal shooting

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The two men shot to death in Martinsburg Saturday night have been identified in what police believe to be a fight between two motorcycle clubs.

Berkeley County Sheriff Nathan Harmon tells The Panhandle News Network they have been identified as 52-year-old
Richard Light Sr. and 39 -year-old Robert Truhan.

Harmon says the two were pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting near Laddie’s Bar off Edwin Miller Boulevard in north Martinsburg.

He says a third person is in stable medical condition at a hospital and will remain unidentified due to the ongoing investigation.

Harmon says the shooting, which happened just after 8:00 Saturday evening is in his words, ‘not a random incident, but an isolated incident involving two
different Motorcycle Clubs.’

Harmon says he is working with other law enforcement in the area as well as the prosecutor’s office to bring the investigation to its resolution.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office at (304) 267-7000.
