WARRENTON, Va. — Two adults and two teens have been charged with multiple crimes after two people were shot outside of Walmart in Warrenton, Virginia Tuesday evening.
Law enforcement was called to the scene around 5:15 p.m. Police said after a confrontation in front of the Walmart parking lot, an unknown male shot a 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman who were sitting inside of a vehicle.
The initial investigation determined during the confrontation, the unknown male revealed a handgun and fired at least one shot into the vehicle. The gunshot hit both the male and the female passenger. Police said a third passenger was unharmed.
The victims inside the car then drove next door to a Home Depot and called 9-1-1. They were then taken to a nearby hospital and treated with non life-threatening injuries, police said.
The shooting led to a large law enforcement presence in the Walmart and Home Depot area.
The four suspects inside the vehicle fled the scene on foot, and authorities have since apprehended two of the men who are in custody.
Authorities said a white Acura wanted in connection to the shooting was been found after it crashed in Midland, Va off of Ritchie Road and Elk Run Road shortly after.
The other two men remained at large before they were arrested around 12:10 a.m. Wednesday.
The investigation revealed one of the adults, Deonte Tyrone Clayton-Warren, shot the victims in the Walmart parking lot with a gun that apparently belonged to the other adult, Jordan McKinley Washington.
Additionally, it's also alleged Clayton-Warren, Washington and the two teens traveled from the Stafford/Fredericksburg area to buy narcotics, police said.
Police said Deonte Tyrone Clayton-Warren, 18, of Stafford, Va., Jordan McKinley Washington, 20, of Stafford, Va., a 16-year-old male and a 17-year-old male, both from Fredericksburg, Va., are charged with four felonies each as followed:
- Two counts of felony malicious wounding
- Felony shooting into an occupied vehicle
- Felony use of a firearm in commission of a felony
Clayton-Warren and Washington are being held with no bond at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center, police said. The two teens are being held at a regional juvenile detention center.
