Police: 4 shot during domestic dispute at Virginia rest stop
WINCHESTER, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say four people were shot during a domestic dispute at a Virginia rest stop.
The Washington Post reports that Virginia State Police said several people tried to intervene when a dispute between a man and a woman turned physical at a rest area off Interstate 81 on Sunday morning. Police say Cesar Juarez Avila fired at the woman and people who tried to help, then fled in a Chevrolet Malibu.
Police say the woman and three men who tried to intervene were taken to hospitals with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.
When law enforcement stopped the Malibu, police say Avila was found with a gunshot wound and died at a hospital.
