Crimes and Courts

Wheeling Police are investigating a shooting that happened late Thursday night in Wheeling Island.

According to police, they got the call around 11:30 p.m. that someone in the rear alley along the 500 block of South Huron Street had been shot.

That person was transported, police believe, by family members to a local hospital. He was then flown to a Pittsburgh area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

“From what we have learned so far, the suspects, two white male suspects, fled the area in possibly a gray colored four door sedan” said Greg Mckenzie, Investigations Commander, Wheeling P.D.

Investigators spent the better part of Friday morning combing through security footage from the area.
They also spoke with witnesses and are hoping to gather enough evidence to issue an arrest warrant in the evening.
