FAIRMONT STUDENTS ROB - An armed robbery that happened at Fairmont State University has led to arrests.

Four Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community and Technical College students have been arrested, after being accused of robbing a campus dorm.

Police say Daniel Singletary, Jawaun Sullivan, Raheem Butler, and Eugene Bradsher forced themselves into a room where two students live.

Singletary allegedly threatened one of those students with a knife, demanding money. The four got away with some cash, but just 20 minutes later, police found them and handcuffed them.

All are being charged with first degree robbery and conspiracy to commit a felony. Their bails are set at $200,000 each.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT CHARGED - A Wayne high school student has been charged after deputies say he was taking orders for marijuana and brought a weapon to school.

Damian Adkins, 18, was charged with the crime.

School officials said Adkins had a lock blade knife at school. A search for further weapons turned up a vial of pot and a note from another student saying he wanted to buy some.

He was charged with possession of a deadly weapon on school property and possession with intent to deliver.

TEEN SHOT WITH 'UNLOADED' GUN - A St. Albans teenager shot himself in the face with a gun he thought was unloaded.

Tony Michael Lawson Jr., 18, was at a friend's house when his friend showed him a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, according to Mike Matthews, of the St. Albans Police Department.

Matthews said Lawson opened the cylinder of the revolver and dumped the cartridges out into his hand, but apparently didn't count them.

Lawson then closed the cylinder, put the muzzle of the gun under his chin and pulled the trigger, the report says.

The gun didn't go off, so Lawson put the gun to the side of his head and pulled the trigger again, Matthews said.

Again, the gun didn't fire, so Lawson pulled the trigger a third time.

This time, the gun went off, and the bullet went into Lawson's right cheek and came out the other side of his face.

He was taken to CAMC General Hospital, his condition is unknown.
