    By Austin Simms,


    CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – One woman has been arrested after pulling a gun on a family member and then shooting through the front door.

    According to a criminal complaint, on Thursday, June 6, 2024, 27-year-old Kearah Walker went to the victim’s residence in Charleston and started an argument regarding family drama.

    The victim and Walker are related.

    Walker then proceeded to bang on the victim’s door and when the victim opened the front door, Walker pointed a gun at the male victim.
