A Marshall County teenage girl is recovering in a Morgantown hospital Sunday after being shot in both legs yesterday.
Moundsville Police said the shooting took place at 1:00 a.m. Sunday.
Sergeant Bill Helms said the 17 year-old girl was shot one time, but the bullet hit each of her legs, just below the knees.
