VA—A Richmond man has been charged
with malicious wounding, after shooting another man in the leg the evening of July
11, and injuring himself in the process.
Police say 25-year-old Travis Burley and another person met
29-year-old Matthew Johnson in the parking lot of Cancun Margarita Bar &
Grill located in the 3100 block of Plank
Road shortly before 8:00 PM.
It appears the three met for an illegal drug transaction;
the incident was sparked by an argument between Burley (of Richmond)
and Johnson (of Spotsylvania), after Burley
entered John's vehicle to complete the transaction.
During the argument, Burley brandished a semi-automatic
handgun, and he and Johnson struggled over the weapon. Burley then shot Johnson
in the left hand and in the left calf. Burley also accidentally shot himself in
the left hand.
Burley then exited Johnson's vehicle, got into his own car
and drove about 100 yards. He then parked the vehicle, got out and sat on the
sidewalk, where he called 911. The person who was with Burley fled the scene on
Johnson drove himself to a nearby hotel and called 911.
Both Burley and Johnson were apprehended when law
enforcement officials arrived, and then transported to Mary Washington
Hospital for treatment of
their injuries. They were both released into police custody a short time later.
Police recovered a semi-automatic handgun from Burley's vehicle;
he was charged with malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission
of a felony and is being held on no bond.
A large amount of
marijuana was recovered from Johnson's vehicle; he was charged with possession
with the intent to distribute and is being held on no bond.
