Aggravated Malicious Wounding – On January 4 at 3:41PM, officers responded to the area of Rixlew Ln and Ashton Ave in Manassas (20109) to investigate a shooting. When officers arrived on scene, they located two victims, a 17-year-old male juvenile of Manassas and a 16-year-old male juvenile of Woodbridge, by a wooded area near the above location.

One of the victims sustained a gunshot wound to the upper body while the other victim sustained a minor, non-gunshot related injury to his head. Both victims were transported to area hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation revealed that the victims were walking through a wooded path in the above area when they were approached by two men, later identified as Jonathan Leonel AVILES and a 17-year-old male juvenile of Manassas. During the encounter, the AVILES suspect brandished a handgun and struck both victims. At one point, the 16-year-old victim was shot in the upper body.

After the incident, the suspects fled in the vehicle occupied by two other men, identified as Steven Joseph ROLDAN and Diego MARTINEZ.
