William Schmuhl told Fredericksburg
Police that he was walking from the Dunning Mills Inn to the Sunoco gas station
at 2307 Jefferson Davis Highway around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec., 14 when he
was approached by a man, who shot him with a BB gun. Schmuhl was struck three
times in the head and face, and was treated at Mary Washington Hospital.
The victim and suspect knew each
other; the victim was living with the suspect's former girlfriend at the
Dunning Mills Inn. Christopher Williams, 22, of Fredericksburg, was arrested
for aggravated malicious wounding and incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional
Jail under no bond.
Schmul was charged with felony child
abuse last week after his girlfriend's 4-month-old son ended up in the hospital
with fractured ribs and other injuries. He is also incarcerated at the
Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.
