Waynesboro: Teen charged in Pine Avenue shooting
An 18-year-old Waynesboro man was charged on Tuesday in connection with a shooting that police had initially said was self-inflicted.
Brian H. Henkel has been charged with discharge of a firearm in an occupied dwelling in the Sept.8 shooting of Joshua Via, 21, who suffered a gunshot wound to the chest.
Via has been hospitalized since the shooting.
Henkel is the owner of a 9mm handgun that was found inside the apartment where the shooting took place, police said.
Police had thought that Via was along in a room where the shot was fired, but have since determined that Henkel was also in the room at the time of the shooting.
Henkel is free on bond.
