Woman Charged With Shooting Two Kids Is Held W/O Bond, Michelle Obama Announces Details Of Her Week Of Action

Police Are Searching for Answers As to Why This Woman Shot Two Children

Fairfax County Police have charged 33-year-old Veronica Youngblood in last night’s shooting of two children. The unidentified children were found inside of an apartment in the 15-hundred block of Lincoln Circle shortly after 10pm. Youngblood, who is from McLean, was arrested without incident about an hour after police discovered the children.  One child was pronounced dead at the scene and the other is listed in serious condition.

A firearm that police said they believe was involved in the shooting was found when authorities arrested Youngblood.  Police say there is no threat to the public and they believe Youngblood is the only suspect in the case.

Fairfax police are prohibited from identifying juveniles involved in a crime.  Last year, the Virginia General Assembly passed a law prohibiting the release of the names of juveniles in crime cases.

Youngblood has been charged with second-degree murder. Her relationship with the children has not been made public. Police are still looking for a motive in this case.
