MAN FIRES AK-47 AT 7-11 - A Charleston man is facing 19 felony counts of wanton endangerment after he shot-up a 7-11 store at 3:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Justin Tyler Robbins, 18, jumped out of a green SUV in the store's parking lot and opened fire with an Ak-47 automatic rifle, shooting off numerous rounds.

A criminal complaint says officers found spent casings on the lot.

No one was hurt, but glass was broken in the convenience store apparently from debris from the lot.

Video surveillance footage has reportedly been used to capture the man.

The complaint says Robbins got into an argument with someone at the store, coming back about 10 minutes later with the rifle, shooting it fully automatic.

It is illegal to own a fully-automatic weapon without a special federal license. A fully-automatic weapon will continue to fire as long as the trigger is held back, until it runs out of ammunition.

Robbins' bond at $50,000, cash only.

MAN ARRESTED IN MEXICO FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER IN FAIRMONT - The U.S. Marshals Service said John Kanios went to the U.S. Consulate in Cancun, Mexico to request a passport on Aug. 12 and authorities realized he was wanted in the U.S. and deported him to Florida.

Kanios is wanted on multiple charges including attempted murder and wanton endangerment involving a firearm from an incident in Fairmont in 2010.

Kanios was supposed to appear for a pre-trial conference hearing in the U.S. District Court this May, but he didn't show up.

He was indicted for failure to appear and was charged with more federal firearms violations.

Kanios wasn't in the United States, but hiding in Mexico. He'll be sent back to West Virginia to face state and federal charges.
