    Two Sterling men were arrested in connection with a Dec. 16 shooting of a 22-year-old man inside his CountrySide home.

    Victor D. Lassiter, 19,  was taken into custody during the early morning hours Dec. 16 without incident. Lassiter is charged with robbery, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and malicious wounding.

    Marquis R. Vasciannie 20, was located by authorities late Dec. 17 and was taken into custody without incident. He is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and is being held in Maryland awaiting extradition to Loudoun County.

    The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search warrant on Lassiter’s home on Gable Square.

    The arrests stem from a 4:40 p.m. shooting at a home in the 20 block of Gannon Way. Deputies responded to the scene and found a 22-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. He was airlifted from the scene to a local hospital where he still is recovering from his wounds.

    Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office determined that there were two suspects who fled the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement. 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.

    However, according to Liz Mills, spokesperson for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, at least one of the men was allowed into the home since the victim knew his assailant.

    Comments

    Malicious wounding charge carries a longer possible sentence and is easier to prove.


    Gentlemen I see your future and the prospects look dim at best. I hope you like looking at pictures of women cause that as close as you will get for awhile. Christmas dinner menu includes fried baloney.


    Seems like an upstanding young man…
