Two persons wounded in Virgilina-area shooting / October 15, 2021

Two persons were wounded in a shooting incident around 7:30 p.m. Thursday at a Hogan Road residence in the Virgilina area, according to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

Both persons who were shot were transported to medical facilities for treatment of their injuries, said Sheriff Fred Clark. The matter is under investigation and charges are pending.

Sheriff’s deputies and Virginia State Troopers responded to the scene after the county 911 center received a call about a subject who had been shot on Hogan Road. Officers found a person at the home who had suffered a gunshot wound, and discovered in their investigation that there had been an altercation between the subject and a second person.

Clark described the two subjects as being “familiar with each other” in a press statement. The second person had left the scene before police arrived and was later found at a residence on Buckshoal Road.

Both injured subjects were rendered aid by rescue personnel and transported to hospitals for treatment of their wounds.

Investigators recovered a firearm at the scene “and believe this is an isolated incident,” Clark said in the statement.

Sheriff Clark asks anyone with any information about the incident to please call Investigator Sam Edmonds at (434) 476-3339 or the Halifax County Crime Line at (434) 476-8445.
