HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A Henrico Police officer has been indicted in a shooting last year on Nine Mile Road that sent a woman to the hospital.

Officer Joel Greenway is charged with malicious wounding, shooting into an occupied vehicle and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

"The investigation was led by two Henrico County Police violent crimes detectives and brought before a grand jury," said Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor. "The grand jury found probable cause to issue true bills of indictment for malicious wounding, use of a firearm during the commission of malicious wounding, and maliciously shooting into an occupied vehicle. The grand jury considered the facts of the case and made a decision, as they would in any case."

Officer Greenway was served with the indictments Friday morning. He is still employed with Henrico Police, but he is not actively serving in a police officer role.

On December 15, police say Greenway approached a vehicle he believed was suspicious. He claimed the vehicle sped off and hit him so he fired at the vehicle.

When police later found the vehicle, they also found Kimberly McNeil, a passenger in the vehicle, suffering from gunshot wounds. She was brought to the hospital for treatment.

The driver had fled the scene but was later found and taken into custody. Police have not charged the driver with any crime.

Greenway's next court date is March 28 at 10:00 a.m.
