HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. -- A woman shot in the head Friday night at a McCoy's Ferry Road home has been released from Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., but her husband remains hospitalized, Berkeley County Sheriff's Department Deputy Lt. Gary Harmison said Sunday.

Harmison, who said he wasn't prepared to release the victims' names, said the man, who is in his late 50s, was improving and should be released soon.

"We haven't really established a motive yet," the sheriff's deputy said of the 8 p.m. shooting with a small-caliber weapon.

The victims knew the shooter, Harmison said.

Anyone with information about the shooting may call the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department at 304-267-7000 or Berkeley County Crime Solvers at 304-267-4999.
