MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A man wanted in connection with a shooting Saturday near Hedgesville, W.Va., turned himself in Wednesday and was arraigned on a charge of malicious wounding.

Keith Samuel Herald, 29, of 203 Spur Cap Trailer Park in Martinsburg, had been sought by police in the shooting of Alan Jerrell, of Gore, Va.

Jerrell was shot with a rifle early Saturday on 4-H Camp Frame Road. Jerrell, who was shot in the groin, was released from Martinsburg City Hospital Tuesday.

The State Police report accompanying the court papers say the rifle used in the shooting was a 7.62x39 mm.

The police report said officers found two cartridges from a rifle of that type at the scene and quotes witnesses as saying they heard two shots fired.
