Shooting Investigations On January 27 at 4:20PM, officers responded to the 15100 block of Cloverdale Rd in Woodbridge (22193) to investigate a shooting. When officers arrived, they located two victims suffering from gunshot wounds to the arm and lower body. Officers used their Department issued trauma kits to provide immediate first aid to the victims before rescue crews arrived on scene. The victims, identified as a 15-year-old male and a 17-year-old male of Woodbridge, were flown to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries for precautionary reasons. The initial investigation revealed that the victims were walking in the above area when they were involved in an altercation with an unknown suspect. During the encounter, the victims were shot. The suspect then fled the area and police were contacted. Several shells casing were located in the area. Later that evening around 11:05PM, officers responded to a residence located in the 15200 block of Crescent St to investigate a second shooting. The victim, a 30-year-old man of Woodbridge, reported to police that he was sitting inside of his home when he heard several gunshots outside. At some point, the victim was grazed by a bullet causing a minor injury. Upon further investigation, detectives with Violent Crimes Bureau and Special Investigations Bureau believe that the two shootings appear to be related and are not random. At this point, detectives also believe that the victim of the second shooting does not appear to be related to the parties involved and was not the intended target. No other injuries or property damage was reported. Multiple shell casings were recovered in the area of Cloverdale Rd and Crescent St. There is no suspect information available at this time. The investigation continues.
