Parkersburg, Wood County , West Virginia
A man is charged with wanton endangerment after police say he allegedly fired off about a couple dozen shots at a home in Wood County early Wednesday morning.
Shaun Michael Linko, 25, of Parkersburg was arrested during a traffic stop near I-77 and Route 50 a short time after the incident.
The shooting was reported about 2 a.m. in the 1100 block of Lynn Street in Parkersburg.
That's where officers found nearly 24 bullet casings from an assault rifle. No one lived inside that residence, but police say a water line was damaged after a round apparently went through three walls before hitting the pipe.
Linko was arraigned in Wood County Magistrate Court and remains in jail on $50,000 dollars bond.
