A gas company employee was shot in Lincoln County on Monday afternoon, Chief Sheriff’s Deputy J.J. Napier said Tuesday.But it's OK because the Sierra Club said it was sorry. . .
A man dressed in camouflage with his face painted black approached Mark Miller, an employee with HG Energy LLC, on Joe’s Creek near Sod, Napier said.
“At that time he played Mr. Miller a recording that said ‘Stop the drilling’ and then stuck a gun through the window of the passenger side of the truck,” Napier said.
Miller told police he grabbed the gun, which fired, shooting him in the hand, Napier said. Miller then drove back to the HG Energy office in Yawkey, Napier said.
Beth Little, a member of the West Virginia Sierra Club, said in a voicemail that the organization’s board members were shocked to learn of the incident.Come to think of it, that's not exactly an apology for inciting folks to violence.
“We think violence is deplorable,” Little said in her message.
