Second teen arrested in Virginia interstate CU shootings
CROZET, Va. (4/1/08)--A second teenager was arrested Friday in the police search for shooters who fired gunshots at passing cars on Interstate 64 between Waynesboro and Charlottesville, Va., and into a credit union while it was closed Thursday morning. Authorities arrested the 16-year-old teen whose name was not released, after storming a central Virginia farm (The Knoxville News Sentinel March 29). Earlier, another man, Slade A. Woodson, 19, of Afton, Va., was arrested, announced Virginia State Police Friday. He was charged with shooting at a residence in Waynesboro and at the DuPont Community CU, Waynesboro (News Now March 31). Because investigators said the shooters slightly injured two drivers, Woodson and the other teen were charged with two felony counts of malicious wounding, one count of attempted malicious wounding, two counts of the use of a firearm in felony, and five counts of a malicious shooting at an occupied vehicle. The credit union in Waynesboro, reported the vandalism at its Lucy Lane office Thursday morning. "During the night, while the office was closed, random shots were fired at the building and a vehicle on the premises," Jackie L. Cason, vice president of human resources, told News Now Friday. The incident was discovered Thursday morning when the credit union opened for business. Because it occurred overnight and not during business hours, DCCU conducted "business as usual" on Thursday. "No credit union employees or members were involved or affected by this event," Cason said. She said at least four bullets struck the building, a sign and an unoccupied van in the parking lot. One went through an exterior window into an office, she told News Now.
