Mink Shoals Man Faces Wanton Endangerment Charge

Neighbors in the Dutch Road area of Mink Shoals reported hearing gunshots Tuesday morning, and others said their homes had been hit by projectiles. Other homeowners reported a man knocking on doors in the area. More Kanawha County sheriff's deputies were dispatched at that point, and saw 27-year old Aaron Shaffer walking toward them with a shotgun. He dropped the gun when deputies demanded it. He was arrested without incident, and charged with one count of Wanton Endangerment. Monday night Shaffer called 911 to report prowlers outside his home, but deputies didn't find any. They're also checking the house for explosives since it was barricaded.
