MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Police have arrested a Morgantown man after a shooting that left one man dead and another man wounded.

Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston says in a news release that 32-year-old Jeremiah Martin was arrested Saturday following a traffic stop in Fairmont. Martin was charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. Preston says the investigation is continuing.

Martin is being held in the North Central Regional Jail on $75,000 bond. Jail records didn’t indicate whether Martin has an attorney to comment on the charges.
