Man shot, killed in Morgantown; two arrested UPDATED 3:40 p.m. Thursday
Updated on: 10.11.12

A Nineveh man is dead and a Trafalgar teen is facing a murder charge after what police said started as a fight over a woman.

Nineveh resident Brad Price, 20, died after being shot multiple times Wednesday night in Morgantown.

Police arrested Justen Alain Knapp, 19, Hougland Street, Trafalgar, on a charge of murder.

Bryan Scott Wooldridge, 21, Hicks Road, Brown County, was arrested on a charge of assisting a criminal with murder.

The fatal shooting took place before 7 p.m. in a field on South Hickey Road, about a mile north of the main intersection in Morgantown, Morgan County Sheriff Robert Downey said.

Wooldridge drove Knapp to the scene of the shooting, and also helped him get away and hide the gun, Downey said.

Price was found dead in the liquor store parking lot at the intersection of State Roads 135 and 252, where his friends had brought him, police said. The parking lot is just a couple doors down from the police station.

Price and Wooldridge are being held at the Morgan County Jail without bond.

Wooldridge was currently out on bond from a Class C felony burglary case in March, in which he and three friends were accused of stealing items from a rural Trafalgar property. In that case, the homeowner shot one of Wooldridge’s friends, who lived.
