Shooting Investigation – On July 12 at 10:30PM, officers responded to the area of Colonial Dr and Washington St in Occoquan (22125) to investigate a shooting. When officers arrived, they located an unoccupied vehicle that had sustained extensive damage and appeared to have been struck multiple times by bullets. Additional officers responded and began checking the area for possible victims.  Two victims, a male juvenile and female juvenile, were located at a nearby residence. Both victims sustained gunshot wounds and were transported to an area hospital for treatment. The victims’ injuries were non-life threatening. The investigation revealed that there were four total occupants inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting, including the two juvenile victims.
