Suspect in Va. Shooting Incident Turns Self In

May 2, 2012

The suspect in a Southside Virginia shooting incident that preceded a deadly car wreck has turned himself in to authorities.

Twenty-one-year-old Lamont Anthony Woods of Martinsville is being held without bond at the Henry County Jail. An arraignment is scheduled Wednesday.

The Henry County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets that Woods turned himself in Tuesday afternoon.

Woods is charged with attempted murder, malicious wounding and related charges. Henry County Commonwealth's Attorney Bob Bushnell says Woods faces no charges stemming from the wreck.

The sheriff's office says three adults and an infant fleeing the scene of Saturday's shooting were killed when their car went out of control and hit a tree.
