CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A woman was injured in what appears to be an accidental shooting Saturday evening, police say.
The incident happened around 6 p.m. at an apartment in the 1400 block of Quarrier Street, said Lt. H.P. Hickman of the Charleston Police Department.
The woman was coming up the stairs in her apartment building when a man fired a handgun in another part of the building, Hickman said. The bullet went through a wall and into her shoulder, he said.
She was taken to CAMC with non life-threatening injuries.
The man left the scene without speaking with police, Hickman said.
"The detectives bureau is investigating," Hickman said. "At this time we think it's an accidental shooting, but they're out just to make sure."The suspect is described as a white male driving a silver 4-door Pontiac.
