GLENWOOD, W.Va. -- A 25-year-old man was fatally shot in Mason County Monday afternoon.

According to the Mason County Sheriff's Office, Shane A. Meadows died of a single gunshot wound while at a residence on Chandler's Ridge Road in Glenwood, which is about 20 miles northeast of Huntington on W.Va. 2.
