April 11, 2019

HUNTINGTON — The following information was provided by police reports filed at the Cabell County Sheriff’s Department:

BRANDISHING: Police responded to a brandishing incident that occurred about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday in the 5300 block of Camp Branch Road in Barboursville.

According to the report, the complainant, an employee with the West Virginia Division of Highways, was working with a crew on paving in the 5300 block of Camp Branch Road. The victim said a juvenile male and female emerged from a residence in the area. The juvenile male told the victim the road was his road and the workers needed to leave, and that if they did not leave, he would shoot the victim.

The victim then said the juvenile brandished what he believed was a camouflage 12-gauge shotgun. The workers then vacated the area.

Upon further investigation by police, the suspected juvenile told police he was concerned the workers were damaging the grass on his father’s property and the gun he pulled was a BB gun. The BB gun was a camouflage gun with the orange safety tip covered with camouflage tape that the report states could have been easily mistaken as a real firearm.

Juvenile petitions were filed against the suspect. He was taken into custody, arraigned at the Cabell County Courthouse and released to his parents.
