Huntington Police continue searching for a person of interest following the discovery of a man's body in West Huntington at about 5 a.m. July 19, across from Adams Landing and behind Grayson's Assisted Living Home. 

A resident said there was a robbery followed by shots fired.

Williams reported a witness told him, "The lady that works at the home said she seen a man hiding behind the dumpster. She told him to get out of there. She said she thinks they attempted to rob the blind man and He was shot n killed"

WSAZ interviewed  Angel Brumield, who was taking a work break on the deck near the scene. She saw a man near a dumpster who crawled on hands and knees around a garage. 

"After I heard a gunshot, I heard screaming and hollering, dogs barking and the guy runs up the alley," she told WSAZ. 


Huntington police continue investigating. The name of the victim has not been released.
