WAYNE TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — There are more questions than answers after the discovery of a body in a cabin in Greene County.

State police and the Greene County Coroner were called to the village of Spraggs in Wayne Township, about nine miles from Waynesburg.

The crime happened at a cabin off Strawn Hill Road. State police confirmed it was a homicide investigation.

“How and why this individual died is currently under investigation and we have a lot of troopers out there doing a lot of investigation,” State Police Lt. Christopher Neal said.

“The public has nothing to fear. We don’t believe that there’s anyone out there running around with a gun.”

Sources told KDKA-TV that two people were shot – a man and a woman. The man was fatally wounded.

The woman was transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. There is no word on her condition.

Police have identified the deceased, described as a black male, but have not released his name. An autopsy is being scheduled.
