Marquize Kumae Scott, aka “Q,” has been charged with malicious wounding and wanton endangerment.

According to Huntington Police Chief Hank Dial, the victim, Jovan Carpenter, has ties to both Huntington and Detroit Chief Dial says Carpenter was taken to the hospital by his friends with a gunshot wound to the thigh after an argument broke out between a group of people.

Chief Dial says, “Anytime you have something in a neighborhood like this, it’s scary because bullets are being fired and it could be someone that’s not involved that could be hit. You don’t want anybody to get shot, but the victim was definitely involved in the conflict.”

Anyone with information of Scott’s whereabouts is encouraged to call 911.
