HUNTINGTON — A Huntington woman was jailed Friday after she was accused of shooting a person she said stole a drill.

Amanda Lynn Clark, 27, was jailed at 5 a.m. Friday. Authorities in Cabell County charged her with robbery, malicious assault and obstructing. Bond was not set.

According to a criminal complaint, Huntington police were called to 3632 Moore Road in Huntington about 12:40 a.m. Friday on reports of a shooting. A victim told police they were asleep in a shed they occupy as a residence at the location when Clark woke them up.

Clark was accused of pointing a handgun at the victim, who she accused of stealing a drill. The victim denied the theft and was shot by Clark in the right thigh, the complaint said.

Police accused Clark of fleeing the area, and the victim was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center by a friend for medical help.

Clark is housed at Western Regional Jail in Barboursville.
