UPDATE (09/12/2013):

On Thursday, officials from Ruby Memorial Hospital said a shooting victim from Preston County was released.

Robert Beerbower had been recovering from two gun shot wounds to the stomach that he sustained on Saturday.

Officials said he was listed in good condition over the past few days.

UPDATE (09/10/2013):

On Tuesday, officials told 5 News that Robert Beerbower was in good condition at Ruby Memorial Hospital.

According to a police report, Stephanie Gentry-Russell was Beerbower's current girlfriend and when she found out that his ex-wife was with him on Saturday she became enraged.

Her cousin, Michael Glenn, told her the two were together and she asked him to bring her to Beerbower's home. Glenn drove her there and placed a gun in her lap.

Police said when they arrived she slashed the tires of the ex-wife's car. When Beerbower came outside to see what was going on he was shot twice in the stomach.

They were both arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder.

UPDATE (09/08/2013):

Two people were arrested and charged with attempted murder in Preston County after they allegedly drove to a man's home, damaged his wife's car, and then shot him.

Officials from the Preston County Sheriff's Department arrested 30 year-old Stephanie Gentry-Russell, and 32 year-old Michael Glenn after they allegedly drove to Robert Beerbower's home in Bruceton Mills just before 5 a.m. early Saturday morning.

When they got there, the pair allegedly damaged a car belonging to Beerbower's wife and shot their gun a few times. When Beerbower walked outside to check things out, that's when he was apparently shot twice in the stomach.

Beerbower was transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital for his injuries, and the good news is he is expected to be okay.

If you have any further information about this crime, you're asked to call the Preston County Sheriff's Department at (304) 329-1611.
