Police: Woodbridge Man Shot in Lower Back in Lake Ridge
Police say the incident is not random.
Police are investigating a shooting that took place the evening of Sept. 17 in the area of Woodfern Court and Antietam Road, Prince William County police spokesperson Jonathan Perok said.
Police responded to the above area at 9:40 p.m. for a report of a shooting. An 18-year-old Woodbridge man told police that he and three friends were walking in the above area when a car full of male acquaintances reportedly pulled up next to them, and several shots were fired.
"One of the rounds struck the victim in the lower back while another grazed one of the other males, a 22-year-old man of Woodbridge, in the head," Perok said. "The vehicle fled the area shortly after the shots were fired. The 18-year-old victim was flown to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 22-year-old male was not injured."
The shooting is not random and the investigation is ongoing, Perok said.
