Two charged with attempted murder in Lansdowne
Javier K. Todd, 19, of Leesburg, and Timothy R. Vaughn, 20, of Ashburn, are charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and shooting into a vehicle.
Both men remain held on no bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
The incident unfolded about 11:30 p.m. when Loudoun deputies responded to the area of Coton Hall Street and Riverpoint Drive for reports of possible gunfire.
As deputies searched the area, a deputy responding to the scene was approached by a man and woman.
They reported they went to meet an acquaintance in the area of Riverpoint Drive and as they pulled up next to the suspect vehicle, a passenger brandished a firearm and discharged multiple rounds into the victims' vehicle.
One of the rounds passed through the vehicle and damaged a passenger side window. The man and woman were not injured. The victims then fled from the area in their vehicle.
A deputy on patrol saw the suspects' vehicle in the Broadlands area around 1 a.m. today and took them into custody without incident.
Todd, according to Loudoun County Circuit Court records, was serving a two-year probationary sentence when he was arrested in Monday's incident. He was convicted June 9 of robbery of a residence following a Feb. 1 incident.
