Oct. 12, 2013 @ 12:01 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Huntington Police have arrested a man in connection with Thursday's early morning shooting on 11th Avenue.

Cantrell D. Foreman, 21, of Huntington, has been charged with one count of attempted murder in the shooting of Christopher A. Jones, 25, according to a press release issued by Lt. John Williams.

The shooting happened about 7:30 a.m. at Jones' apartment in the 2000 block of 11th Avenue.

According to the criminal complaint filed Friday in Cabell County Magistrate Court, Foreman sneaked into the apartment through an unlocked door, went up the stairs into the victim's bedroom and started shooting at him while he was asleep.

Jones is currently recovering from non life-threatening injuries stemming from the attack, which police said was the result of a domestic situation.

The court document says Foreman has provided a recorded confession regarding his role in the incident. He is being held in the Western Regional Jail on a $100,000 bond. Police said he has no prior arrest history with the department.
