McLEAN (AP) Police in Virginia say a woman shot two children, leaving one dead and the second with life-threatening injuries.
Fairfax County police said 33-year-old Victoria Youngblood is charged with second-degree murder in the Aug. 5 shooting at a McLean apartment.
Spokeswoman Tara Gerhard said at an Aug. 6 news conference that officers responding to a report of a shooting found two children. One was dead and the other was taken to a hospital. Police said that child was in life-threatening condition.
Police say Youngblood was arrested in Loudoun County after knocking on an acquaintance’s door. She’s being held without bond. It was unclear whether she has a lawyer.
Police declined to release Youngblood’s relationship to the children, or any other details about them, saying state law prohibits identifying deceased juvenile crime victims.
