June 02, 2012

 Two people were charged in connection with gunshots being fired early Saturday morning at the Sheetz convenience store on West King Street in Martinsburg, W.Va., the Martinsburg Police Department said.

Cambria Olenzuk, 19, of Martinsburg was charged with four counts of wanton endangerment, and one count each of conspiracy and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, according to a police department news release.

Timothy Stewart Jr., 20, of Inwood, W.Va., was charged with four counts of wanton endangerment and one count of conspiracy, the release said.

Stewart also was charged with being a fugitive from justice because he was wanted for a violation of probation in Frederick County, Va.

Police said they were called at 2:29 a.m. for a report of shots being fired at the Sheetz store at 1617 W. King St. When they arrived, they found shell casings from a .380-caliber handgun in the parking lot and interviewed witnesses.

Officers used video surveillance footage from local businesses to identify the vehicle involved in the incident and traced the vehicle to the Martins Landing apartment complex, the release said.

Police said they went to the apartment of the owner of the vehicle, but no one answered the door, even though officers reported they could see people walking around inside.

As a result, officers obtained a search warrant and went back to the residence.

Police said they found a .380-caliber handgun in the apartment and arrested the people inside, the release said.
