Scioto boy murdered
(2007-10-15)
(WOUB) - A Scioto County man is facing murder charges in connection with a fatal shooting yesterday.

Scioto County sheriff's deputies arrested 35-year old Eric Whisman of Friendship after an investigation that began with a 911 call that a boy had been shot on Upper Twin Creek Road.

Sheriff Marty Donini says deputies responded to the call around 5 pm yesterday and found a 17-year-old boy shot in the back and lying in the road.

The boy was flown by helicopter to Saint Mary's hospital in Huntington where he was later pronounced dead.

Whisman is charged with one count of murder and one count of attempted murder.

He is expected to make a first appearance in court today.
