A man walking on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail in Leesburg Wednesday evening reportedly felt a projectile pellet hit him after he had heard gunfire, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded around 7:40 p.m. to the 40000 block of Graydon Manor Lane and located two men who had been allegedly skeet shooting on their property, just north of the trail.
Authorities say the complainant did not sustain any injuries, and the case against the alleged gunmen — whose names have not been released — is pending.
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.
