HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — UPDATE 5/31/19 @ 12:11 p.m.
Police officers executed a search warrant in Huntington Friday morning to look for evidence in a homicide case.

The Huntington Police Department served a warrant at a restaurant in the 2000 block of 3rd Avenue. A shooting happened near the restaurant on May 12.

They are searching for any evidence they could use in the trial for the death of Alvin Jamal Vicks, 30, of Detroit.

Police say someone shot Vicks multiple times. He died near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and 20th Street.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were seen at the restaurant Friday, but Huntington Police Chief Hank Dial says they were only there to assist with translating if needed. The search warrant was for the homicide case and had nothing to do with immigration.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. Police have not released any suspect information.

ORIGINAL STORY 5/12/19
One man is dead after a shooting early Sunday in Huntington.

Huntington Police Chief Hank Dial tells WSAZ, officers responded to a call of several shots fired in the 1900 block of 3rd Avenue. That’s near Marshall University’s campus.

Dial says investigators found a man dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

The incident happened right across the street from Fat Patty's and the closing manager there says he just made it out before everything happened.

"They watched the cameras and they said that I left at like 3:30 a.m. or around that time and a couple minutes after that, that's when it happened," said Chris Leffingwell, the closing manager at Fat Patty's.

Leffingwell says nothing like this ever happens in that area.

"This place is usually pretty much safe, I hardly have any fights here. We've had like one fight in the five years that I've been managing this place," said Leffingwell.

The victim’s name has not been released.

No information about a suspect is available.
