Man charged with shooting from vehicle
A Dumfries man accused of firing a handgun from a vehicle near Linden on Sunday is facing multiple charges in Warren County.
Warren County deputies charged Jordan Antione-Everette Hayden, 19, with shooting from a vehicle, reckless handling of a firearm and being drunk in public.
Warren County Sheriff Daniel T. McEathron said in a statement that a deputy responded to a call around 1:50 p.m. Sunday, finding the suspect vehicle near the intersection of Bifrost Way and Freezeland Road. The deputy then set up a traffic stop at Monterey Service Station, which is at Freezeland Road and John Marshall Highway.
McEathron said there were “several” occupants in the vehicle when the deputy detained them. He said in the statement that the deputy recovered two semi-automatic handguns from the vehicle.
Although “numerous spent shell casings” were also inside the vehicle, McEathron said more could’ve fallen outside the vehicle and that the office doesn’t know exactly where the rounds went.
“We don’t know if these bullets may have struck something,” he said. “We don’t know if someone might walk out to their garage and see a hole in it or something.”
Hayden posted $6,000 bond for release from Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail on Monday. Sarah Seal, classification and records officer at the jail, said his charges from Prince William County are simple assault and property damage. Hayden is scheduled to appear in Warren County General District Court for hearings on April 6.
McEathron said the investigation into the incident is ongoing. The sheriff’s office asks that anyone with further information contact Deputy D. J. Henry by calling 540-635-4128.
