Bridge to Serve 10 Years for Waynesboro Shooting

Posted: Updated:

Samuel Kevin Bridge will serve 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Friday to a shooting in Waynesboro. 

Police say Bridge shot 37-year-old Jeremiah Woodson in the parking lot at the Quadrangle Apartments in Waynesboro in April.  He then went on the run with the help of an accomplice, 24-year-old Ashley Nicole Knight.  

Federal marshals arrested Samuel Bridge and Ashley Knight in West Virginia, nine days after the shooting.

On Friday, Bridge pleaded guilty to malicious wounding and using a firearm in commission of a felony.  He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and will serve another seven years on probation upon release. 

He avoided a jury trial later this month by entering a plea agreement with the commonwealth's attorney.

In July, Knight pleaded guilty to helping steal a car and nearly running over a police officer.
