Police: Man charged for shooting after pot deal gone wrong

August 6, 2019

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Police in West Virginia say a man has been charged for shooting a gun at a car after he was robbed during a marijuana deal gone wrong.

The Charleston Police Department says Monday that Brandon Scott Woodfell has been charged with wanton endangerment.

Authorities say the 21-year-old Woodfell told officers he was trying to buy marijuana when a man took his money and drove off in a black car. Woodfell then fired his gun twice at the vehicle as it fled.

Two people were sitting on a porch when Woodfell started shooting but they were not injured.

Records show Woodfell has been jailed. He has not yet been assigned an attorney.
