By Staff reports

A Charleston man was shot through the arm early Sunday morning, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office said.

Chad Green, 36, was at a home on Newhouse Branch Road when a white male in a white Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck arrived, asking if anyone had seen his girlfriend, according to a news release. The man was told “no” and started to drive off, but he fired several shots toward the garage as he was leaving, the release said.

One bullet went through Green’s left arm. Medics treated him on the scene but he refused transportation to the hospital. The incident was reported to dispatch around 4:15 Sunday morning.

The investigation is ongoing, and the sheriff’s office said it has strong leads and a person of interest.
