SWAT TEAM CALLED TO CROSS LANES - A SWAT team in Kanawha County spent several hours during the early morning Wednesday at an apartment complex in Cross Lanes after 911 calls reported shots being fired from an apartment.

Police say Ashley Shelton fired shots at some neighboring homes.

The Kanawha County SWAT Team evacuated the apartments near Shelton's unit.

Negotiators tried to talk with Shelton, but didn't get any response.

The SWAT team then forced their way inside and arrested Shelton without incident.

He has been charged with three counts of Wanton Endangerment and is in the South Central Regional Jail.

No one was hurt during the incident.

SWAT TEAM CALLED TO EAST VIEW - An alleged stabbing in East View, Harrison County, had police surrounding a house for nearly two hours Wednesday afternoon.

Police said women at a Dollar General on Philippi Pike heard a woman screaming for her life.

"I just pulled in, just shopping in the store, and the girl was screaming to 'Stop! Stop! Let me go.' The guy was screaming for her keys. He had her in a headlock between his legs," said witness Julie Donaldson.

"I ran around the other side of the car and I opened the passenger side door and I grabbed her by her legs and pulled her out of the car and the guy got of the car. He approached me and pulled out a pipe and as he was approaching me he was also trying to unbuckle a holster on the side of him which looked like it could be a gun holster," reported another witness to media.

"We got her back across the road and she was bleeding from her eyes, her mouth, her finger was about to be totally off where he cut her," said Donaldson.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department and a SWAT team responded.

A negotiator tried to get the suspect out of a nearby house, but then discovered he was on a nearby hillside.

The man was taken into custody.
