CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Police arrested a suspect in connection with a Saturday afternoon shooting that left one woman injured, said Lt. H.P. Hickman.
Following a tip, police went to 1004 First Ave. where Jamar Adams, 25, was arrested without incident before 8:30 a.m. Monday, Hickman said.
He was charged with malicious wounding and three counts of wanton endangerment.
Adams allegedly opened fire during a fight with Donovan Hardison, age unavailable, on the 1500 block of Second Avenue on Charleston's West Side. A bullet struck Jodicy Bateman, 21, of Charleston, in her shoulder as she was getting into her vehicle, police said. She was in a car with her mother and a 4-month-old baby. Bateman was treated and discharged from a local hospital. No other injuries were reported.
Police had been searching for Adams since the time of the shooting until a tip led to his arrest on Monday morning.
Following the shooting, Hardison ran down the street and police said they had a positive identification on Adams as the shooter as they searched for him.
Lt. Steve Cooper, chief of detectives, said at the time, "Mr. Adams is well known to the Charleston Police Department. He has a criminal history, and he is well-known to be involved in activities that will result in violence and/or drug-dealing."
Both individuals have a criminal history. Hardison was arrested last year on a drug dealing charge.Neighbors reported hearing three or four shots Saturday afternoon and police recovered ballistic evidence at the scene that would be related to the firearm in question.
Adams has been taken to South Central Regional Jail.
