Community gathers to remember two teens killed in Highland Springs

Highlands Springs mourns shooting victims

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Community members gathered at Oakmeade Apartments in Highland Springs to remember Leona Samlall, 18, and Vanessa Zaman, 18.

Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor was there just steps away from where the teenagers lost their lives.

“Know that you have the full commitment of the Henrico Police Division and my office to find the individual who is responsible for this,” said Taylor.

Henrico Police have identified a suspect in the deadly double-shooting as 39-year-old Abdool Z. Zaman, who is wanted for two counts of second degree murder.

The suspect is known to the two victims and police said the shooting was not a random act of violence.

Family and friends of the victims were not present at the vigil Sunday night.

Organizer Charles Willis says the community wanted to come out and show their support to the family.

Henrico Police are still looking for Abdool Z. Zaman.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

If you see him or know any information you are asked to contact Henrico Police at 804-501-5000 or Crime Solvers at 804-780-1000.
