    Police said within an hour, he went to an address on Dunlap Street, which is nearby, and hot another person. He then returned to Pershing Street.

    One man was flown to a Morgantown hospital, where he underwent surgery for the gunshot wounds. The other victims did not have life-threatening injuries.

    Kolencik said Anderson was charged with attempted criminal homicide, among other charges.

    Police said Anderson is a convicted felon who has committed burglary and robbery. He is not allowed to legally own guns.

    Police are crediting neighbors with helping track Anderson down.

    Another person also suffered minor injuries but was not hit by gunfire.

    "This is a case where we have four victims, and we would have never solved this crime if it wasn't for the brave people in the community coming forward," Kolencik said.

    Police said they still don't know what the motive was.
