One Dead in Logan Shooting
A robbery gone awry at the Wal-Mart in Logan has left one man dead and another man facing murder charges, according to the Logan Police Department.
Logan Police Sgt. Dave White said David Abbot, 37, of Chapmanville, was shot and killed Monday afternoon by the same man whom Abbot had robbed only seconds prior.
White said Abbot went to the Wal-Mart to rob Jesus Canul, 26, of Logan, who was cashing his paycheck.
"The victim was there with the intention to rob Canul," White said.
After Canul cashed his check, Abbot used some sort of sharp object to take Canul's wallet in the Wal-Mart parking lot, police said.
"(Canul) was held in a head lock," White said. "(Abbot) took the wallet from (Canul's) pocket. So it was forcibly taken."
White said police recovered a pair of scissors that might have been used in the robbery.
Once Abbot took the wallet, he began to flee the scene, police said. However, at that point, Canul allegedly pulled out a gun and fired at Abbot.
