A Huntington, WV man told police that he shot a man who was trying to burglarize his home on April 10.

The suspect, Ray A. Davis, was found when Saint Mary's Medical Center responded to a police advisory looking for someone with a gunshot wound, according to a release from the Cabell County Sheriff's Office.

The victim called police at about 2 a.m. and told police that after the shooting Davis left the scene in a car parked a short distance from the home.

The hospital told police that Davis was incoherent when he as brought to the hospital by relatives.  Those relatives told police that Davis said he was shot while trying to rob a home.
