Two teens in custody after Manassas shooting


Manassas police say two teenagers are in custody after shots were fired Friday evening in the Georgetown South neighborhood.

Officers were called to 9800 block of Maury Lane for a reported shooting around 5:30 p.m. and found a car and a house with damage, but no shooting victims, Manassas police Chief Douglas Keen said.

Officers soon learned the shooting involved a 15-year-old and 16-year-old who had been involved in an earlier altercation, said city police spokeswoman Adrienne Helms.

Both were arrested later Friday night in the area of 7th Regiment and Hastings drives.

During the investigation, a juvenile arrived at a nearby emergency room with a wound to the head. Police found that the teen was wanted on “several charges” in Prince William and Manassas. He was detained, Keen said. It’s unclear if that teen was involved in the Maury Lane incident.

Keen said there are no outstanding suspects at the time and there is no “continued threat to the community.”
