One hurt, one held after K.G. shooting
By KEITH EPPS
One man was flown out for medical treatment and another man was in custody following a shooting Wednesday evening in King George County, police said.
The incident occurred about 5 p.m. at a townhouse complex on Heritage Court on State Route 206 just outside the naval base at Dahlgren, Sheriff Steve Dempsey said.
Few details were available Wednesday night. Dempsey said investigators were conducting interviews and obtaining search warrants to assist in the ongoing investigation and were not yet ready to release the names of the men involved. The motive for the shooting had not yet been determined.
Dempsey said it appeared that the victim had been shot in the abdominal area. The sheriff wasn’t sure of the extent of the man’s injuries or where he had been taken.
Charges were pending against a suspect Wednesday night. The relationship between the two men was also unclear, but Dempsey said they did not live together.
