BECKLEY - Beckley Police are still on the lookout for two men wanted in connection with a weekend shooting that left a man seriously wounded.
Police are searching for a motive in the shooting, which happened around 1 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Mankin Avenue and Wood Street.
Authorities said two men entered the home to target a 30-year-old. The bullet went through both of the victim's legs, breaking several bones. He is still in the hospital recovering from his injuries.
Detective Sergeant David Allard said officers still need the public's help in identifying two men believed to have been in the area. One is described as a black man in his mid-20s with tattoos on his face. The other is described as a black man in his 20s with short hair or a mohawk.
Allard is asking witnesses to come forward, even if they feel their information is "irrelevant." He said any details brought to police "may be the missing piece that we need to ultimately solve this."
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers or the Police Department at 304-256-1708.
