A man shot and critically wounded by Bridgeport police after an apparent domestic dispute at an Interstate 79 rest stop in July has been arrested.
Fairmont resident Justin Echols, 23, is charged with two counts of wanton endangerment.
Media outlets say Harrison County Magistrate Tammy Marple set bond at $30,000 Thursday.
Police said Echols had a pistol in his hand when they responded to the rest stop call and refused repeated commands to drop it.
They said they fired when he raised the gun in their direction. An examination later found it was loaded.
