HUNTINGTON SHOOTING - One man is dead after a shooting early Sunday in Huntington.

Dial says investigators found a man dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

The incident happened right across the street from Fat Patty's and the closing manager there says he just made it out before everything happened.

The victim’s name has not been released.

CHARLESTON ROBBERY - An armed robber knocked down the manager of a Gino's restaurant and stole the night deposit bag shortly after midnight Sunday morning, according to Charleston Police.

The manager said that as he was walking in the parking lot outside the Gino's on Lee Street West, taking the money to the night depository of a local bank, a man struck him in the head.

Police say the robber had a hand in his pocket, acting like he had a gun. However, he didn't display a weapon.

The robber stole an undisclosed amount of money and ran toward the alley behind Charleston Light Opera Guild with another man.

The manager was not injured.
