Carlos Bell arrested in Dahlgren shooting

A shooting at the Heritage Court townhouse complex in Dahlgren has resulted in the arrest of a 25-year-old King George man. Carlos M. Bell is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on charges of using a firearm in the commission of a felony and malicious wounding.

Bell surrendered to King George Sheriff’s officers without incident Wednesday, Jan. 15, after another man, who lived three doors from Bell, was shot. Officers who responded to the call found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body.


King George Sheriff Steve Dempsey said officers secured the area and made it safe for medical personnel to enter. “The victim was removed from the scene and transported by air to Mary Washington Hospital,” Dempsey said.

“The victim is in stable condition. He was an adult male, and his name will not be released at this time in the investigation,” Dempsey said. The sheriff said the victim was lying in the doorway of his townhouse when officers arrived.

Dempsey said a search warrant was issued for Bell’s residence and a vehicle on the scene. King George Sheriff’s officers found a handgun, apparently used in the shooting, during their search.

“Both the victim and the suspect were residents of the Heritage Court,” said Dempsey. The townhouse complex is located on State Route 206 in Dahlgren. Officers are continuing their investigation into the incident.
