Three sought in Caroline shooting
Caroline County authorities are searching for three men suspected of exchanging gunfire at a party resulting in the shooting of a woman in the chest.
According to Caroline Sheriff Tony Lippa, dispatchers received a call around 10:35 p.m. Wednesday about a shooting on Jocasta Avenue in the Elsinore subdivision in the southern part of the county.
Deputies learned that multiple shots were fired between three people at a large house party, Lippa said.
A 20-year-old woman was shot in the chest as she was trying to run from the area, Lippa said.
He said she was not believed to be the intended target.
The woman is currently listed in critical but stable condition at an area hospital, he said.
Lippa said investigators are asking for the public’s assistance in locating three people wanted in relation to this shooting.
Jujuan Morris, 21; Jessee Rashaud Morris, 22; both of Ruther Glen and 20-year-old Kwumane Goodall of Doswell “are to be considered armed and dangerous,” Lippa said.
Virginia State Police forensics technicians and troopers assisted the Caroline Sheriff’s Office in the investigation.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of these men is asked to call the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office at 804/633-5400 or anonymously at 804/633-1133 to leave a message on the tip line.
