CLIFFVIEW PILOT HAS IT FIRST: Federal marshals have arrested one of two men accused of killing Westwood High School basketball star Ryan Henry and critically wounding his brother, Richard, following a fight outside a West Virginia nightclub.
Authorities said a barroom argument spilled into the parking lot of a private West Virginia club a short walk from a bridge leading into Maryland in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 4.
Authorities say they’ve recovered the gun used in the shootings and are looking for Rasshammach Roberts, 28, and 27-year-old Rasjahnon Roberts. Arrests warrants charge both with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.
Each Ryan brother was hit once, police said. Richard Ryan — who was shot in the face — is still clinging to life in a Maryland hospital, his family at his side, which has delayed funeral arrangements for Ryan.
ONLY CLIFFVIEW PILOT HAS IT: Police in two states believe they are closing in on the gunman who killed former Westwood High School basketball star Ryan Henry and seriously wounded his brother, Richard, after a fight at a West Virginia bar.
The Henry brothers and a group of three or four men they didn’t know got into an argument inside a bar known as My Place in Ridgeley, West. Va., Capt. J.J. Wingler of the Mineral County Sheriff’s Department in nearby Keyser told CLIFFVIEW PILOT Wednesday night.
“As they were leaving, the incident went out of control and the Henry brothers were each shot once with a handgun by one of the men in the other group” in the parking lot, Wingler said.
