Huntington police said a man is facing charges in two separate shootings in which four people were injured.

Demaurea D. Davis, 21, of Akron, Ohio was charged with four counts of malicious wounding and two counts of wanton endangerment, according to a news release from police.

Police said the first shooting happened April 28 in the 900 block of Washington Avenue. Police said the victim was shot once in the back by Davis outside of the victim's home.

The second shooting happened May 5 in the 1700 block of Artisan Avenue. Police said Davis shot three people, including a juvenile. All three victims suffered minor injuries. They were treated and released at the hospital.

Both shootings remain under investigation, and more arrests are pending.

Davis was taken to the Western Regional Jail where bond was set at $105,000.
