Huntington Man Arraigned

Huntington Officer Ronnie Lusk is on adminstrative leave following a shooting Saturday morning. Mitchell Dunn, 51, a man accused of firing at police in Huntington early Saturday morning has been arraigned on charges of attempt to commit murder and wanton endangerment. His bond was set $210,000 cash. His next court appearance is set for February 2nd. Dunn was shot on his porch by a Huntington police officer after he allegedly opened fire on police. Huntington Police Chief Skip Holbrook says officers were responding to a report of gunshots fired on Washington Avenue when Dunn came out onto his porch with a firearm and fired a round in their direction. Lusk returned fire and struck Dunn in the leg and shoulder. Officer Lusk was involved in another shooting in November 2009, in which he shot and killed Joe Porter in the Babylon nightclub in Huntington. After a lengthy investigation, Lusk was found to have followed protocol.
