Montross man injured by shots fired into car in King George

The King George County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting of a Montross man who was injured early Sunday morning when shots were fired into his car.

Sheriff Steve Dempsey said the victim was a 24-year-old man who was driving on Windsor Drive between U.S. 301 and Ferry Dock Road in King George when the shooting occurred at 2:30 a.m.

Dempsey said officers are trying to determine the cause of the shooting.  The victim said he had not had any arguments with anyone recently and had no idea why someone would shoot him. “At this point we feel it could be random,” Dempsey said.

Dempsey said the victim was driving a white Mustang along Windsor Drive “when he was passed by two vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed going in the same direction.”

“As the second vehicle passed the victim’s car, the victim heard a noise and thought the second car had struck his vehicle,” Dempsey reported.  “The victim’s car was struck twice by gun shots, once in the door and once in the panel entering the trunk.”

“The victim felt a burning sensation in his leg, reached down and discovered it was bleeding,” Dempsey said. The victim drove himself to Mary Washington Hospital where he was treated for a gun shot wound to his left leg and then was released.

Authorities were notified once the victim arrived at the hospital. Sheriff’s officers said the victim was accompanied at the time of the shooting by a 23-year-old woman from Hague. The woman was not injured in the shooting.

Sheriff’s officers are looking for two vehicles in connection with the shooting incident - dark mid-size passenger car and a dark smaller passenger car that looks like an older model Honda Accord.

As is usual in these types of investigations, sheriff’s officers did not publicly identify the victim or his companion. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (540) 775-2049.
