FAIRMONT — The Marion County Grand Jury handed down indictments against 26 individuals on Oct. 5, including a local man who eluded police in May after a shooting on Hoult Road.

Shawn Monte Pritchard, 33, of Fairmont, was indicted Monday for one count each of attempted first degree murder using a firearm and wanton endangerment involving a firearm.

During attempts to locate Pritchard on May 17, investigators learned he was fishing at a pond near AFR Road. Deputy U.S. Marshals, Task Force Officers, and West Virginia State Police coordinated a plan to apprehend Pritchard at that location. When officers approached Pritchard to arrest him, he fled on foot into a nearby wooded area. Pritchard was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit and search of the area. Officers recovered a firearm during the arrest. Pritchard was also wanted on one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Police said on May 3, Pritchard shot at two people at 507 Hoult Rd. While neither person was injured, both vehicles they were seated in were struck.
