Manassas teen shot, injured

A 14-year-old Manassas boy was shot in the leg early Tuesday morning in a drive-by shooting, city police said.

Five teens were standing outside a residence on the 9800 block of Buckner Road, the home of the teen who was shot, at 1:10 a.m. when the teens noticed a late ’80s or early ’90s model Honda or Toyota with white pin striping driving through the area, according to police.

After several passes, one of the teens asked the occupants of the vehicle what they wanted; the vehicle then drove away.

The car retuned a few minutes later and a male passenger, who was seated in the back seat behind the driver, began firing a pistol at the group. Five shots came from the car, and the five people on the street ducked for cover. The car then drove off in the direction of Grant Avenue, according to reports.

The victim, who had been shot in the left leg, was taken by ambulance to the Prince William Hospital in Manassas where he was treated and released.

Manassas police Sgt. Marc J. Woolverton would not say if the group recognized or knew the occupants of the car.

He did describe the suspects as three Hispanic males and one Hispanic female.
