TYSONS CORNER, Va. -- (WBFF) -- A woman has been arrested and charged with murdering a child and shooting another Sunday night in Tysons Corner, according to authorities.
Fairfax County Police said two children were shot and one died at the scene while the other remains in life-threatening condition.
Police said 33-year-old Veronica Youngblood, of McLean, was taken into custody after an acquaintance of hers in Loudoun County reported her to police when Youngblood knocked on that person's door. Youngblood has been charged with second-degree murder. She is being held without bond.
A firearm believed to be involved was recovered when Youngblood was arrested, Fairfax County Police said.
Regarding last night’s shooting, we work hard every day to be transparent. However, a VA law passed last year prohibits us from identifying juvenile victims of a crime, even indirectly. It restricts us from providing almost any info w/out parental consent. https://t.co/ESW2lFnm2O— Fairfax County Police (@FairfaxCountyPD) August 6, 2018
