Recent police reports and arrests in Fredericksburg:

SHOOTING:

Central Station, 1917 Princess Anne St, 1/27 1:50 a.m.  Officers patrolling in the area during a live music event reported hearing gunshots coming from the building.  As officers approached, a large crowd of people ran out from the side entrance and into the parking lot.  One victim, a 29-year-old male from Montross, was assisted by a security guard and transported by ambulance to Mary Washington Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.  Hospital personnel later notified police that a second victim, a 26-year-old male from Spotsylvania, was brought in to the emergency department also suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. 

Various witness accounts indicated that a fight broke out inside the club and shots were fired as patrons exited the building.  It is unknown at this time if the victims were intended as targets.

As officers were investigating the incident and attempting to control the crowd in the parking lot, another security guard reported seeing a male subject with a gun in his waistband.  Officers located a subject matching the description provided and the subject at first attempted to flee, then aggressively resisted the officers as they detained him and recovered a handgun.  A large crowd of patrons surrounded the officers and tried to intervene during the arrest; security guards again assisted by keeping the crowd at bay.  

The detained subject, Christopher Gyamfi, 23, of Woodbridge was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest, and obstruction of justice.  Gyamfi was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.

Officers and deputies from the Virginia State Police and Stafford and Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Offices also responded to assist with gaining control of the crowd and dispersing the remaining event patrons.    

The investigation is ongoing and additional suspects are still being sought in connection with the shooting.  Anyone with information about this incident, or anyone who has still or video images taken at any point during the event, should contact Detective Carlos Reyes at 540-654-5919.
