MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A 25-year-old man was arraigned Monday afternoon on charges in connection with a shooting outside a nightclub along W.Va. 9 west nearly two years ago in which two people were injured, according to court records.

Terrick LeGrande was arraigned on two charges of wanton endangerment, two counts of malicious wounding and felonious possession of a firearm, said Berkeley County Magistrate Kristy Greer.

LeGrande was being held in the Eastern Regional Jail Monday night on $100,000 bond, jail officials said.

LeGrande was arraigned on the charges after being extradited to Berkeley County from Fairfax Va., said a spokeswoman in the Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney's office.


LeGrande gave an address of 2050 Martins Way, No. 626, Martinsburg, and 17813 Broadfording Road, Apt. B, Hagerstown, court records show.

The shooting occurred Dec. 15, 2002, in the parking lot of Tego Bay, a nightclub along W.Va. 9 near the entrance to the General Motors plant, Lt. K.C. Bohrer of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department said in court records.

Witnesses saw a man firing a weapon at people in the parking lot after an argument, Bohrer said.

At least three shots were heard by witnesses and two people were injured, Bohrer said.

One man was shot in the foot and another man was shot in the upper thigh, Bohrer said.

The shooter left before police arrived, Bohrer said. Witnesses said he was known as "Sticks" and he was seen leaving the scene in a black Lincoln Navigator, Bohrer said.

A conviction on wanton endangerment carries a punishment of one to five years in jail, court records show. A conviction for malicious wounding carries a punishment of two to 10 years in jail and conviction for felonious possession of a firearm carries a punishment of up to five years in jail or up to a $5,000 fine, according to court records.
