HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK) — Huntington Police say a man was shot and killed on Washington Avenue on November 13.

Huntington Police patrol officers say they were flagged down at approximately 4:24 p.m. on Nov. 13 by a neighborhood resident on the 800 block of Washington Ave. Police say the individual told them someone was shot and needed help.

Crystal, the neighbor who found 38-year-old Jason Ellis, says she remembers he was conscious but badly injured.

He had his hand over the wound and he pulled his hand up and he had a blood spot there.

Officers found Ellis laying on the front porch of a house. At this point, Huntington Police officers say they began getting information and providing medical attention until EMS arrived.

Authorities say Ellis was brought to a local hospital where he later died.

Crystal says incidents like this one are becoming more common and for her, this is concerning.

It’s concerning to live in this neighborhood because, to see something like that, you never know what’s going to happen. That was probably over something that was a little bit of nothing.
