AG Lawyer Facing Charges Once He's Out of the Hospital

A West Virginia Attorney General's Office lawyer remains hospitalized after undergoing surgery for what the police chief describes as self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Charleston Police Chief Brent Webster told the Charleston Daily Mail he doesn't know how long Mark Bramble would be in the hospital. The chief says charges will be brought once he's released. Bramble was taken into custody more than two hours after the standoff began Monday in the city's South Hills neighborhood. He remained hospitalized Tuesday. Bramble was an assistant attorney general for the attorney general's employment programs division. He was hired in June 2012 and had turned in his resignation notice last Thursday. The resignation is effective later this month.
