Last evening's shooting investigation has led to an arrest of a 23-year-old Winchester man and charges on a second suspect.
On January 30, 2023, at approximately 3:46 pm, the Winchester Emergency Communications Center received several 9-1-1 calls of reports of gunshots fired near the 1400 block of S. Braddock Street. Witnesses told Winchester Police Department (WPD) officers that shots were fired from a 2018 Nissan sedan. An 18-year-old victim was located in the area where the gunshots were heard. The vehicle was located at approximately 5:21 pm in the 800 block of Berryville Avenue, and Andrew Mudd, Jr. was arrested.
Further investigation determined that Mudd was operating the vehicle, and Trenton Devone Houghton, 21-year-old from Winchester, was identified as the person who fired the gun. Mudd was charged with Discharging a Firearm from a Motor Vehicle, Attempted Malicious Wounding, and Conspiracy to Commit Malicious Wounding. Houghton is currently wanted on charges of Discharging a Firearm from a Motor Vehicle, Attempted Malicious Wounding, and Conspiracy to Commit Malicious Wounding.
After processing the scene and vehicle, a search warrant was executed in the 1600 block of Henry Avenue on January 31, 2023 and a firearm was recovered. The investigation is believed to be connected to multiple shots fired in the 1700 block of Roberts Street on January 18, 2023.
