Police Make Arrest in Death at Albemarle Bar

Posted: Updated:

Albemarle County investigators arrested a man in connection with the death of Vincent Shifflett. Joseph Terry III is behind bars on an involuntary manslaughter charge.

Investigators say results from the Medical Examiner's Office in Richmond are prompting an involuntary manslaughter charge.

On June 27, family members say 22-year-old Shifflett was attacked outside Riverside North, a restaurant and bar located in the Hollymead area. They claim he was attacked from behind and left for dead.

Shifflett died the next day from what doctors say was a brain aneurysm.

Terry was arrested Tuesday afternoon, but investigators won't say what was contained in the results of Shifflett's autopsy to prompt the felony charge against Terry.

Terry - 32 years old from Albemarle County - is being held on a secure bond at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.
