The criminal complaint says that in the early mornings hours of Dec. 16, Gillenwater struck Brandon Kinder above the left eye with the barrel of a handgun, which caused a large laceration to Kinder’s face, as well as fired one shot in the direction of Kinder’s head.


• Case No. 14-F-58 - A Raleigh County man was arrested and charged with making terrorist act threats to a student at Sherman High School.


David Henry Linville, 26, of Shady Spring, was arrested on May 20, 2013, in Beckley by the Boone County Sheriffs Department.


Linville was taken into custody and charged with Threats of a Terrorist Act, a felony punishable by not less than one or no more than three years in prison. He was arraigned in front of a Raleigh County magistrate and released on bond.


According to investigators, a threat was relayed from Linville to an unnamed student at Sherman High School.


The threat was to relive the Newtown shooting and was specific to Sherman High School, according to a press release from Boone County Chief Deputy Chad Barker.


The communications took place on a social media site and were very specific and disturbing. The student brought the threats to the attention of the staff at the school on Tuesday, who immediately contacted the Deputy Sheriff who is stationed at the school.


Once Linville was identified and located, he was tracked down by deputies in Raleigh County, Barker said.


Barker said investigators with the Boone County Sheriff’s Office then traveled to Raleigh County to interview Linville.


Also, while there deputies were able to make the arrest and serve a search warrant at Linville’s residence to collect evidence of the crime, according to Barker.


Schools in the Big Coal River area of Boone County were running on a modified schedule for the first part of the school day, because of the incident, Barker explained. The Boone County Sheriff’s Office worked very closely with the Board of Education and the staff at Sherman High School to ensure the proper steps was taken to keep everyone safe. Sherman High School was on a modified lockdown during the time on the incident with a police presence while Linville was being located. Other schools in the area were placed in modified status only as a precaution. The threat was very specific to one school and that threat was addressed immediately, officials said.
