CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A well known Charleston bouncer is recovering from multiple gunshot wounds, and the community is rallying behind him.
Jimmy Beasley has been a bouncer in downtown Charleston for several years, but he nearly died early Saturday morning after police say two men shot him 12 times.
Shaun Dearien and Ben Huffaker bounce alongside of Beasley. They were there the night he was shot.
"Somebody just screamed that they were poppin' shots in the air, so we started clearing the girls out. But then somebody just started screaming Jimmy's name, and that's when we all just ran outside," Dearien said.
