RUPERT - Greenbrier County authorities arrested three more people they believe were involved in a mid-September Rupert shooting.

Jeffery Alden, 30, of Beaver, and Ryan Isenhart, 22, of Richwood, were arrested Saturday for two counts of attempted murder, according to Chief Deputy Bruce Sloan of the Greenbrier County Sheriff's Office. Jessica Alden, 22, of Beaver, was arrested Friday for accessory after the fact, which means she had some alleged criminal involvement after the shooting took place, Sloan told WOAY.

The arrests stem from a Sept. 13 incident during which authorities say a group of neighbors pursued potential thieves driving away from a trailer. During the pursuit, the car's occupants fired a paintball gun and a firearm, according to Sloan.

One man was shot in the temple, and another sustained a gunshot would to the leg.

After the shooting, Jessica Alden then picked up the alleged shooters in Raleigh County, according to deputies. Aaron Russell Clemens, 22, of Beckley, and Alonzo Wilson Martin, 21, of Beaver, were each charged with two counts of attempted murder earlier this month.

Although the warrants were issued in Greenbrier County, the arrests were made by the Beckley Police Department and the U.S. Marshals of Raleigh County.

The three suspects arrested over the weekend remain in Southern Regional Jail.
