A 15-year-old Culpeper County boy is accused of shooting at a vehicle occupied by men who were later charged with assaulting a 17-year-old at the boy's residence.
According to Corey Byers of the Culpeper County sheriff's office, the three men--Jonathan W. Welch, 21, of Rixeyville, Christopher R. Marsh, 28, of Culpeper, and John R. Randall, 21, of White Post--showed up at a Monumental Mills residence late Saturday afternoon.
As they left, the 15-year-old fired one shot from a .22-caliber rifle, Byers said. The shot hit the vehicle but not any of those inside.
