Police investigate shooting in Ashburn, Va.

The sheriff’s office in Loudoun County, Virginia, are investigating a shooting incident that took place on Boxwood Place in Ashburn early Saturday morning.

The shooting arose out of an earlier altercation between two groups. Subjects in the case had reportedly confronted victims in the area around Boxwood Place near Claiborne Pkwy. Gunshots had been fired at the victim’s vehicle as they drove away, a preliminary investigation from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office stated.
