Charleston Police are investigating a family altercation Friday afternoon that sent three people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said "A pair of pants was apparently stolen by one of the family members... During the altercation [Kenny Miller] attacked two of the victims with a baseball bat." Miller will be charged with two counts of malicious wounding when released from CAMC General.

Police said Miller allegedly beat his sister Becky Ratcliff and her fiancée Jeremy Saunders with a baseball bat before Saunders reached for a knife and stabbed Miller.

"Saunders stabbed him to get him to stop beating him with the baseball bat...At this point the stabbing appears to be self defense."

STUDENT CHARGED COMMITTING TERRORIST ACT - A seventeen year old Point Pleasant High School student is in a juvenile detention center charged with making terror threats Thursday against the school.

School officials have been mum about what happened.

No one was injured.

School was back in session today, but many students didn't show up.

Point Pleasant Junior/Senior High School Principal, William Cottrill, explained that people on social media posted their view of the situation which then tail-spinned and parents weren't sending kids to school today because there was someone with a gun, then two people with a gun, then three people with a gun, as the exaggerations continued.

Ronnie Spencer, Public Relations Officer for the system, says some people get most of their information, which is fabricated, through social media and that makes people panic, saying "It makes a bad situation worse."
