The release stated that on June 18, at approximately 3:14 p.m., Deputies with the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Woodland Terrace for a shots fired call.

According to the release, deputies located the two suspects who were then immediately detained and handguns were found either, “on their person or in their immediate surroundings.” Detectives were then called to the scene to investigate.
