PARKERSBURG MAN SHOT BY FATHER - Parkersburg Police responded to Greenbrier Garden Apartments Saturday night in reference to gun shots while other officers went to CCMC after a caller said a victim of gunshot wounds was being transported to the hospital in a car.

Police are saying family members were involved in a domestic dispute after returning home from a local bar and the dispute escalated, resulting in Robert Lee Krafft, 27, being shot by his father, Michael Todd Stanley.

Police are saying that Stanley retrieved a 9mm pistol and shot Krafft two times in the abdomen.

Krafft was flown to Charleston Area Medical Center by helicopter. He reportedly underwent surgery and is in stable condition.

Parkersburg police officers surrounded the apartments with Parkersburg S.W.A.T. and Crisis Negotiators, with numerous apartments evacuated.

Crisis Negotiators attempted to make contact with Stanley inside the apartment, but Stanley failed to respond to officers requests to come outside.

After approximately 3 1/2 hours, S.W.A.T. team operators breached a set of glass doors taking Stanley into custody without further incident.

Stanley was arraigned Sunday morning in Wood County Magistrate Court and failed to post a $250,000 bond and was incarcerated.

INNOCENT BYSTANDER SHOT - Police are saying that a Charleston woman was in the wrong place at the wrong time when she was shot in her arm on Charleston's West Side.

The 21-year-old victim was sitting in a Durango when a suspect fired several shots, apparently shooting at another person.

Lt. Steve Cooper said, "He missed his target and hit a vehicle that this young woman was sitting in." A four-month-old baby was also in the car.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Jamar Adams, 25, of Charleston, police saying they consider him to be armed and dangerous.
