MAN FIRES SHOTS - A man in Putnam County was arrested on two counts of attempted murder after deputies said he fired shots at two people inside a car.

Thomas J. Sowards of Hurricane was arrested Saturday, jail records said. Deputies said he is accused of shooting at two people in an argument over child custody issues and Child Protective Services getting involved.

It happened Friday on Sycamore Road in Hurricane as the couple who was shot at were there to pick up the children. The couple drove to the Hurricane Police Department where officers found three holes in the car from the bullets.

Deputies said Sowards took off from the home before police could arrest him, but he was taken into custody over the weekend.

Sowards is being held at the Western Regional Jail on a $100,000 cash only bond.
