HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - The search continues for a man wanted in connection to Tuesday’s triple shooting in Henrico that sent two women and a child with life-threatening injuries to the hospital.
Just after 5 p.m., the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina sent out an alert about the suspect, 26-year-old Tiye Adam Washington II, possibly being in Rutherford County.
In the alert, authorities said Rutherford County deputies and agents with the NCSBI and ATF searched for the suspect in the southeast region of Rutherford County. Officials said the suspect’s car was found, but there was no sign of him.
On March 28, Henrico Police responded to the 5400 block of Mason Manor Drive for a shooting after they said someone in the home made the 911 call.
Authorities say the shooting happened inside a house in the area, and it is suspected to be domestic-related and isolated to the single-family, two-story home.
Henrico Police say they were called to the home just after 6 p.m. that same day for a domestic-related call.
Three victims - two women and one male juvenile - were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. On Wednesday, Henrico Police said the victims, in this case, are still in the hospital being treated for their life-threatening injuries.
Police identified 26-year-old Tiye Adam Washington II as a suspect Wednesday and will charge him with three counts of malicious wounding and three counts of using a firearm to commit a felony, with additional charges pending.
On Wednesday, NBC12 went to the neighborhood and talked to residents. A couple of people, who didn’t want to talk on camera, told NBC12 they were sad and shocked to hear about this incident happening doors down from where they live.
Henrico Police say Washington is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information can call Henrico Police at (804) 501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
