LCSO investigating Lovettsville gunfire complaints
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating errant gunfire that has allegedly occurred over the last three years in Lovettsville, according to a Monday report.
Authorities say a resident in the 13000 block of April Circle recently issued a gunfire complaint in the area.
While an LCSO deputy investigated the claim, the complainant notified the deputy that a neighbor’s residence had been struck by gunfire between the estimated timeframe of October 2017 and November 2019.
The incident, which was not previously reported, remains under LCSO investigation.
In December, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of amending county ordinance with the goal of curbing errant gunfire.
Per the updated code, projectiles may not be fired within 100 yards of “all occupied structures” and may not cross into adjacent properties without the owners’ permission.
