CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - According to Metro 911 dispatchers, one man was taken to the hospital after a shooting at the Hillcrest Apartments in Charleston.

The Charleston police department said at 11:55 pm they responded to a shooting call at 1000 Hillcrest Drive East at the Hillcrest Drive Apartment Complex.

Police said 20-year-old victim Michael Cox of Charleston was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds.

Apartment resident Angel Allen said the shooting happened right outside her home and described hearing multiple gunshots.

“These could have gone through my window, these could have gone through my neighbor’s window,” she said. “It kind of made me start thinking of the safety of my own child and my own family.”

Allen added it’s going to take some time before she feels completely safe after the incident.

“I’m not personally involved with the victim but last night my anxiety was all through the roof.,” she said. “And I was like what if they come back?”

The shooting remains under investigation by CPD.

At this time, CPD has no suspect information.
