West Virgina Self Defense: Kanawha deputies: Two wounded in Jefferson after intruder tries to enter apartment :: 10/19/2021

Kanawha County deputies said they are investigating after an intruder trying to enter an apartment in Jefferson was shot by the resident who also accidentally wounded his own friend.

The incident happened just after midnight Tuesday, according to a news release from the Kanawha Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said it appears the intruder mistook the apartment for a neighboring unit belonging to a relative. The gun the intruder held was a pellet gun, which he drew while wrestling with friends of the resident in the apartment.

The resident shot through the hand of his own friend and into the chest of the intruder. The intruder was taken to an area hospital and was in serious condition. Deputies said the friend with the hand injury was taken for treatment, and his injury is not life-threatening.

When the investigation concludes the matter will be reviewed by prosecutors for consideration of criminal charges. Deputies said no charges are expected to be filed against the resident who shot the intruder.
