A man accused of murdering another man on Wheeling Island is back in Ohio County for the first time since an August homicide.

Danny Mendoza is accused of shooting and killing Joseph Harrison.

On August 19, 2019, officers responded to S. York Street in regard to a possible shooting. They found Harrison on his back with what appeared to be a gunshot in the neck area. Harrison was taken to Wheeling Hospital, where he later died.

Video from a business captured an altercation between Harrison and an unknown man, eventually capturing the shooting.

Mendoza was arrested in Fort Washington, Md., 2 days later; he had outstanding weapons out of Montgomery County in Maryland.

He was also arrested with Mai’ehia Lane-Plater, who was charged with accessory to murder after the fact. She has bonded out.

There is currently no bond set for Mendoza. He will be back in court at some point in the next 10 days for a preliminary hearing.
