WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS (WVVA) - More details have been released about a shooting in White Sulphur Springs on Tuesday.

One man, Henry Wright of Cove Creek in Monroe County, is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm in the case, Sheriff Jan Cahill told WVVA Wednesday morning.

Wright is pictured at left.

Cahill said "numerous charges" are forthcoming against Wright, who police believe shot Brian Brooks and Justin Martin while they were in a vehicle on Tanis Drive in White Sulphur Springs.

Deputies are still working on a motive and other details that could influence other charges against Wright.

Another woman was taken into custody Tuesday night, but has since been released.

Both Brooks and Martin were in critical condition when they were airlifted to out-of-area hospitals, Cahill told WVVA. Their conditions at this time are unknown, but as of the early morning Wednesday they were still being treated in the hospital.
