On August 13 Deputy Miller received a call in reference to a male individual walking beside the road with a shotgun in the Rum Creek area. Miller responded to the call, assisted by members of the LCSD and the WVSP.
During his investigation, Miller was advised of the following:
Chambers was at his residence with his father, who was taking a nap on the living room couch, when he retrieved a shotgun and loaded it with a Federal, three inch shotgun shell. Chambers allegedly fired one round into the television, located beside the couch where the father was napping. Chambers’ father allegedly awoke, saw his son and asked him “What the hell are you doing?” Chambers mumbled something that his father could not understand and left the residence.
Chambers was observed walking beside the road on Rum Creek carrying what witnesses reported as a shotgun and wearing blue latex gloves. One witness advised that Chambers said he was going to kill Bill Abbott.
Officers spoke to Abbott’s wife who stated she saw Chamebers outside of her residence carrying something, but she could not tell what it was.
The officers began to search for Chambers who was later located on the railroad tracks just above his residence. According to police reports, Chambers appeared to be intoxicated. The reported shotgun was not located during the initial investigation, but a 20 gauge federal shotgun shell casing and evidence of what appeared to be a shotgun blast to the television was located.
Chambers’ bail is set for $7,500.
