Edward Perry spent nearly an hour in Cabell County magistrate court recounting what happened to him two weeks ago at the Milton Flea Market. "I had a gentleman come around the side of the building with a gun. The gun was pointed at me in my face."
He says he was unloading merchandise for his spot at the flea market when he was approached, allegedly by Brett Newman and at least one other person, tied up, and robbed. Perry tried to get up and run away, but was shot three times, twice in the leg and once in the abdomen. He says, "I thought to myself, I'll lay here for a second and play dead, but I knew in my mind I still had enough strength to get up and go get help"
He did go get help and gave the car description to police that lead them to this scene near the mall just minutes later. They arrested Romel Green and Tiffany Whittenberg in connection with the alleged crime, but the alleged trigger man, Newman, went on the run for several days. He was caught last week, and Friday morning, Perry got to face the man who allegedly robbed and shot him.
