18 year old Spotsylvania teen charged with shooting another teen in Caroline

The Caroline Sheriff’s Office has charged a Spotsylvania teen in connection to a teenager being shot in the leg.  Deputies were called on Feb. 7 to a shooting in the northwestern part of the county.

The sheriff’s office said a 17-year-old had a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg.

Sheriff Tony Lippa said, “Deputy A. V. Williams responded to the scene and quickly applied first aid and a tourniquet to the juvenile’s injury. There is no doubt in my mind that this was a lifesaver until Caroline EMS arrived.”

Deputies arrested 18-year-old Jaishaun Thomas.  He’s charged with aggravated malicious wounding, attempted armed robbery, use of a sawed-off shotgun in the perpetration of a crime of violence and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Lippa said that it was not a random act of violence and that the two knew each other.  The investigation continues.
