The latest incident, reported to police at 4:24 p.m. on Thursday, July 15, occurred outside the Riverwood apartments in the 2700 block of Yosomico Lane in Woodbridge.
The investigation revealed that the victim, a 19-year-old man, was shot at about 4 p.m. while he was walking across the parking lot with a female acquaintance. An unknown male in a vehicle approached the two, yelled toward the victim and the female and then fired his gun toward them, according to 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok, Prince William County police spokesman.
The 19-year-old man was struck in the lower body and driven by a family member to an area hospital, where police were contacted. Officers responded to the scene and located shell casings in the parking lot as well as signs that a nearby apartment had been struck by bullets. No other injuries nor property damage were reported, Perok said in a news release.
