South Boston Police continue to investigate weekend shooting incidents in South Boston, one occurring Friday night in the Glendale Drive area, and another occurring early Saturday morning in the area of Fenton Street and Ellyson Avenue.
Police are still seeking information from the general public regarding both incidents, according to South Boston Police Sgt. Chris Carswell.
“I can’t say they’re connected,” Carswell said Tuesday when referring to the two shooting incidents.
South Boston Police Lt. Randy Redd on Tuesday said the shooting incident that occurred in the 100 block of Glendale Drive happened during some type of “get together.”
Officers were on patrol in the Poplar Creek area of South Boston late Friday evening when they heard gunfire coming from the Glendale Drive area, according to a police report, with the 911 dispatch center fielding numerous calls about a shooting in the 100 block of Glendale Drive.
When officers arrived, they discovered a 20-year-old Danville woman had apparently been shot in the leg, with the woman treated at Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital and released.
Two other people were being treated for gunshot wounds at the hospital’s emergency room, authorities discovered while investigating the initial shooting.
A 22-year-old South Boston man was airlifted to VCU Medical Center in Richmond for treatment of a gunshot wound to the abdomen, and a 24-year-old South Boston man was treated and released for a gunshot wound to the hand.
Carswell declined to identify either of the shooting victims other than where they reside.
Police also continue to investigate a report of shots fired in the Fenton Street, Ellyson Avenue area of South Boston early Saturday morning.
According to South Boston Police, at approximately 1 a.m. several shots were fired, with three houses and an SUV in the area struck by gunfire.
No one was hurt in that shooting incident.
