Police in Kanawha County are searching for the person who shot a man in the stomach.

It happened just after 10pm Wednesday on Little Coal River Road in Alum Creek -- near the Kanawha-Lincoln County line.

Dispatchers say the suspect drove off in a silver car -- either a Honda Civic or a Prelude.

State Police pulled over a car matching that description on Corridor G.

Gene Ratcliff of Louisa, Kentucky was inside the car and arrested on obstruction charges after giving police a false name.

Police did perform a gun residue test on Ratcliff, but are waiting on the results from the crime lab.

No word yet on the victim's name or condition, but police say his injuries don't appear to be life threatening.
