Teens Arrested in Va. Highway Shootings
CROZET, Va. --- Authorities stormed a farm in central Virginia Friday, March 28, and arrested two teenagers in connection with the random gunfire that shut down a mountain highway the previous day, the Associated Press reported.
The shootings slightly injured two drivers and prompted the shut-down of a 20-mile stretch of I-64 between Waynesboro and Charlottesville, home to the University of Virginia.
Shots were also fired at a credit union and a residence in Waynesboro between midnight and 2 a.m. last Thursday.
Authorities charged 19-year-old Slade Allen Woodson of Afton in all three shootings. They also charged a 16-year-old whose name was not released, AP reported.
The two suspects were charged with two felony counts of malicious wounding, one count of attempted malicious wounding, two counts of the use of a firearm in a felony, and five counts of maliciously shooting at an occupied vehicle, AP reported.
