Shooting, robbery suspects among individuals indicted by Loudoun Grand Jury

A Loudoun County Grand Jury on Monday indicted 35 individuals, including two Sterling men who were arrested in December in connection with shooting a 22-year-old man inside his Gannon Way home.

Victor D. Lassiter, 19, was indicted on charges of aggravated malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, robbing a residence with a gun, three counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, attempted robbery, abduction and maliciously firing a firearm in an occupied dwelling.

His co-defendant, Marquis Vasciannie, 20, was indicted on charges of robbing a residence with a gun, two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and abduction.

The man who was injured in the Dec. 16 incident was shot multiple times and taken to a local hospital for treatment.

It’s believed Lassiter and Vasciannie were known to the victim and he was targeted. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has not yet released what they believe was the motive for the shooting.

Also indicted in a separate case were two Sterling men charged Jan. 16 in connection with a drug-related robbery.

The two are accused of robbing a Chantilly man of his smartphone and wallet at gunpoint.

Steven Fields Dashawn, 19, Jean Bertrand Adou Ehounoud, 20, were both indicted on two counts of street robbery with a gun and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. A 17-year-old boy was also charged in the incident, but is being tried as a juvenile.

Other notable indictments included:
• Michael E. Belew, of Knoxville, Tenn., who was charged Dec. 14 with indecent liberties with a child under age 15. He's scheduled to plead guilty April 12.
• Kevin Allan Clark, of Ashburn, who was charged Jan. 10 with three counts of knowingly selling stolen property and two counts of receiving stolen property.
• Russell Ferrebee, of Round Hill, who was charged Jan. 4 with strangling another to cause wounding or injury, child abuse and neglect and assault and battery of a family member.
• Oscar Ivan Flores-Otero, who was charged Jan. 18 with aggravated sexual battery and indecent liberties with a child by a custodian.
