MAN FIRES MILITARY RIFLE - One man is facing charges after allegedly firing an AK-47 weapon in Nitro Tuesday evening.

Nitro Police Chief Bobby Eggleton says Blaylock suffers from severe PTSD and was having an episode. According to the criminal complaint, Blaylock told police he saw people following him so he fired about 10 shots at them.

"I'm glad he's in the system, but he probably shouldn't be in the criminal justice system," Chief Eggleton said. "He should be in the mental health system because he needs help."

"It is a scary thing, for anyone, adult or child it was scary," said a neighbor.

Eggleton says Blaylock's shots also hit a business adjacent to his apartment complex. The business had two people inside of it. One person was sitting directly where a bullet hit, but he says due to the building being masonry, the bullets weren't able to get in.

"Thank goodness, the officers that were there were able to diffuse the situation, disarm him and take him into custody without any further shots being fired," Eggelton said. "Because, that could've really been bad."

Blaylock was arrested and charged with two counts of wanton endangerment.

HUNTINGTON GUNFIRE - A man wanted in connection with a shooting back in September of 2019 has been arrested.

According to a criminal complaint, Marquize Kumae Scott, of Huntington was arrested Tuesday by members of the Huntington Police Department and Huntington Violent Crime Drug Task Force after an attempted traffic stop.

Officers stopped Scott in the 2300 block of 9th avenue. Officers say he attempted to make a run for it by hopping out of the car from the passenger's side.

Investigators say officers and detectives chased Scott while giving him commands to stop.

They say the chase continued through yards and between houses until Scott was taken into custody in the 2400 block of 10th avenue.

Scott is facing charges of malicious wounding and wanton endangerment. Police say Scott shot another man, Jovan Carpenter, in the 1700 block of Artisan Avenue on September 10.

Huntington Police Chief Hank Dial says the incident began with an argument. The suspect fired five or six rounds, hitting Carpenter at least once in the thigh.
