Mon Sheriff’s Department arrest Labor Day shooting suspect

The Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department arrested a man after he allegedly shot someone in the back on Labor Day.

Kenneth Ray Stevens, 56, is charged with malicious assault.

Deputies responded to a shooting on Landis Lane, which branches off Booth Run Road and is just west of the River Road Volunteer Fire Department, around 6 p.m., Monday.

There was one victim who was shot in the back and witnesses said Stevens shot the man, according to a criminal complaint.

Chief Deputy Al Kisner said due to the on-going nature of the investigation no more information was available Tuesday morning – including the name of the victim.

Stevens was arraigned in Monongalia County Magistrate Court Tuesday, by Magistrate Darris Summers. Bond was set at $40,000 cash or surety.

Stevens has two convictions for driving while his license was suspended or revoked in December 2007 and April 2008, according to court records.

He also has a shoplifting conviction from July 2008 and is facing charges of assault and obstructing an officer from June 2018, records show.
