Chantilly man arrested for shooting into neighboring home

A Chantilly man was arrested Wednesday after police said he shot into a neighboring home.

Juan M. Ramos-Marroquin, 33, was charged with unlawful discharge in an occupied residence.

Loudoun deputies were called about 5:30 p.m. by an Ashburn resident in the 44200 block of Litchfield Terrace who reported finding a bullet that traveled through the wall of a bedroom and through a bed. He told deputies he had heard a commotion during the early morning hours prior to his findings.

Deputies began an investigation and around 10:47 p.m. responded to a home where they found Ramos-Marroquin had shot two rounds from a firearm around 2 a.m. that same day. One of the rounds traveled into a shared wall with the second traveling outside the back of the home. No injuries were reported. The incident is under investigation.


Area and name make me wonder if the gun was a legal purchase; I am guessing neither the gun nor its owner are legal, just a guess. I also bet the guy was drunk at the time.

Ed its illegal to shoot in the local counties unless you are on a really large property. So your sarcasm about keeping it on your property is poor advice either way.

If you want the right to play with guns keep the bullets on your side of the fence.
