UPDATE: Man sentenced in Huntington bar shooting
A man arrested in December 2016 in a bar shooting pleaded guilty Wednesday to wanton endangerment.
Willie Moten III was sentenced to five years in prison.
The shooting happened at Gary's Place near the intersection of 20th Street and 10th Avenue.
At least three people were hurt in that shooting.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Three people were shot early Friday morning at a bar near the intersection of 20th Street and 10th Avenue.
The three people injured were taken to the hospital, and they're expected to be OK.
The shooting happened at Gary's Place, and the Alcohol Beverage Control Administration is suspending their liquor license pending a revocation hearing originally set for Dec. 13, but moved to Dec. 15.
Willie Moten III was arrested and charged with wanton endangerment. Moten was also shot during the altercation but there were no other arrests.
Friday's shooting isn't the first time police were called to Gary's Place. In fact, Huntington City Council ruled the bar a public nuisance in August.
Most people in the neighborhood thought this ruling meant the bar had to shut its doors for good, but the bar can stay open until the court gets involved.
The city of Huntington has filed for an injunction with the Circuit Court. If the court grants the injunction, the city can shut down Gary's Place.
In the meantime, Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli has a message for concerned people in the bar's neighborhood.
"I don't know why they couldn't individually file civil action against the owners. That's certainly an option, and if I lived in that neighborhood that's exactly what I'd be doing," Ciccarelli said.
The Circuit Court hearing will be held Dec. 16.
