A 21-year-old South Boston man, Tyjae Amahd Hendren, is wanted by police in connection with a Nov. 19 shooting incident on North Main Street.
Hendren has three outstanding felony warrants for his arrest, and the South Boston Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating him.
Detective Chris Carswell of the South Boston Police Department said Hendren’s warrants stem from the November incident on North Main Street, near College Street, in which an SUV, a van and J&M One Stop Shop were shot. No one was injured in the shooting.
Hendren is wanted on the following felony warrants in connection with the incident: shooting into an occupied building, shooting into an occupied vehicle and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Following the North Main Street shooting incident, police reported that two men were walking along North Main and pulled out handguns and started shooting at a burgundy SUV traveling north.
That SUV quickly pulled into the parking lot of J&M One Stop Shop where it hit an unoccupied van. That’s when bullets from both suspects hit the SUV, the van, the convenience store and a metal shed nearby, police reported.
The burgundy SUV then pulled out, heading south, while the two suspects headed north. Once in a safe spot, the occupants of the SUV called police.
While Hendren remains at large, police have arrested the other suspect allegedly involved in the North Main Street shooting.
Tequan Jamal Watson, 23, of Richmond was arrested in February, and charged with shooting an occupied vehicle, discharging firearms or missiles at a building, and use of firearm in the commission of a felony.
Hendren is a Black male standing 5’9” tall and weighing 135 pounds. He has brown eyes.
Anyone with information about Hendren’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or the Halifax County Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (434) 476-8445.
