An Ashburn man has been charged in the Sept. 9 incident during which a woman was injured by a stray bullet in Hamilton, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
William R. Hymes, 24, was charged Wednesday with reckless discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 misdemeanor per Code of Virginia § 18.2-56.1.
Officials with the commonwealth's attorney's office say Hymes could face up to 12 months in jail or up to a $2,500 fine or some combination of confinement and a fine.
A court hearing had yet to be scheduled as of Wednesday.
The charge was served as a releasable summons, meaning Hymes was not booked at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, according to a sheriff's office spokesman.
