INWOOD, W.Va.- The Berkeley County Sheriff's Department is investigating a shooting that happened Sunday at around 6:40 a.m. at 178 Harding Lane, according to police.

Deputies say 33-year-old Andre Baker suffered a gunshot wound to his extremity after five rounds were fired into the residence he was sleeping in.  Baker was taken to Berkeley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Neighbors say they have no idea why the shooting happened.
"I was just surprised because it's a quiet neighborhood and my kids play down there," said neighbor Cathy Hertelendy. "I'm very surprised, shocked. I'm definitely going to take some different actions I guess with my kids going down there."

The Sheriff's Office is still investigating the shooting. They are asking anyone with information to contact them at 304-267-7000 or Crime Solvers at 304-267-4999.
