A West Virginia man is recovering and another man is in jail after what authorities described as a random shooting on Saturday night near Glasgow.

Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier said that on Saturday night, Raymond Dolin, 39, was sitting on the side of Highway 2 a few miles west of Glasgow and waiting for a ride when a man drove up in a maroon pickup, shot him and drove off shortly before 6 p.m.

Dolin, from West Virginia, is hitchhiking across the country and writing a memoir called “The Kindness of America,” Meier said.
