“It’s just a terrible, terrible tragedy,” said Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas. “We’re still trying to figure all of this out. Hopefully we’ll find out his reasoning as the investigation continues.” McComas also said that there was no indication that race played a factor in the shooting of the two men.
Police also found multiple guns with a large stockpile of ammunition. Black was not found under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. “Hopefully we’ll find out his reasoning as the investigation continues,” McComas said.
Black is currently being held without bond at West Regional Jail. His preliminary hearing will be held on February 4th.
