CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Police have arrested a man who they say shot a man in the back in Elkview Tuesday.
James "Jimmy" Sigmond, 38, of Elkview, shot David Sharp, 32, in the lower back at about 1 p.m. Tuesday at a home on Beckett Branch Road in Elkview, said Lt. Bryan Stover of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department.
Sharp was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center's General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Stover said.
Police searched for Sigmond after witnesses said he drove to Sharp's home, pulled out a pistol and started shooting. Witnesses told police there had been ongoing problems between the two, Stover said.
