LINCOLN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man was arrested Wednesday in connection with an attack on his brother in Ranger, W.Va., last Friday that involved a Samurai sword, West Virginia State Police say.

Jeffrey Turley, 31, is charged with attempted murder.

According to the criminal complaint, Turley got into a fight with his girlfriend. When his brother tried to break it up, Turley allegedly used the sword -- cutting his brother halfway through his arm.

Troopers say Turley then began firing rounds with a firearm, even shooting himself.

Turley was released from the hospital on Wednesday and taken to jail.
