Neil MacInnis was arrested after two people were shot at New River Community College.
Wednesday, October 9, 2013
The teenager charged with shooting two women on April 12 at New River Community College’s satellite facility was indicted Tuesday on at least four felonies.
A Montgomery County grand jury indicted Neil MacInnis, 19, on two counts of malicious wounding and two counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to online records.
MacInnis is scheduled to enter a plea to the charges on Nov. 13. He is being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
MacInnis was arrested after police received a call about 1:55 p.m. on April 12 in regard to shots fired at the community college’s facility inside the New River Valley Mall. Part-time employee Taylor Sharpe and student Kristina Bousserghine were shot before the suspect was subdued about 2 p.m. by an off-duty security guard and Christiansburg police officers.
Both women were hospitalized but later released.
Also indicted on Tuesday:
Defendants indicted Tuesday could be facing other charges in addition to the ones listed on online records, said county Commonwealth’s Attorney Mary Pettitt . She said she could not comment on any additional charges that could have been added against any of the defendants until the indictments are served.
Pettitt said 183 indictments were presented to the grand jury. The grand jury found sufficient evidence to return all of the indictments except one. The one not returned involves the case of former Christiansburg High School and Radford University track and field champion Chris Dobbins.
Dobbins had been facing an aggravated sexual battery charge, but the grand jury did not indict him on that charge, Pettitt said. She said the prosecution will seek a direct indictment in the future against Dobbins because “we believe the evidence supports a conviction.”
