Sheriff: One person injured in Glade Spring, Va. shooting; investigation underway


GLADE SPRING, VA (WJHL) – The Washington County, Va. Sheriff’s Office is still trying to figure out what led to a shooting incident at a motel in Glade Spring.

On Friday, June 2, around 7:30 p.m., the Washington County, Va. Central Dispatch got a call of a man with a possible gunshot wound at the Knights Inn Motel.

That motel is located off of Interstate 81 on Exit 29.

A man found at the motel was transported to Bristol Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Investigators say he may be released from the hospital Sunday.

Sheriff Fred Newman told News Channel 11 it is unclear if that individual was hit by gunfire or injured in some other way, though Newman did say a shotgun was discharged inside the motel room.

Sheriff Newman also said they were looking for a male and a female who were at the scene. On Saturday morning, authorities found that male and female they were looking for in Beckley, West Virginia.

Sheriff Newman said it appeared the male and female did not know the other person involved in the incident.

At this time, no arrests have been made and no charges have been filed. The investigation is ongoing.
