CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- One man was shot and killed and a woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries during a shooting on Charleston's West Side Monday afternoon, Charleston Police said.

Police continued to search for the fleeing suspect Monday night after a shooting at 403 Piccadilly St., near Interstate 77.

Metro 911 dispatchers say that at about 1:41 p.m. shots were fired at the corner of Mary and Piccadilly streets and that a suspect fled the scene in a white SUV. A diagram on the SUV's back windshield possibly has the letters "S-O-X," police said.

Police initially said a man had been abducted but later discounted that report. That man was found and is being interviewed as a witness.

The woman was taken to CAMC General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said Charleston Police Lt. Steve Cooper.

Police are not releasing the victims' names pending notification of relatives.

911 dispatchers notified officers to be on the lookout for Daniel Little, who is driving a white Ford Expedition with West Virginia license plate 3RA186. Police are also seeking a second man, Jarrod Edward Washington, 29, of Charleston.

Dispatchers asked anyone who sees the vehicle to call 911. Little is described as a 29-year-old black male.

First degree murder and first degree robbery warrants have been issued for both men.

Witnesses said they saw two men run from the home and jump into an SUV after they heard gunshots.
