Two shootings over the weekend, one fatal, and one leading to arrest

City police are investigating two shootings that occurred on Saturday. The Daily Progress reports today that a 19-year-old Charlottesville man was discovered shot to death in the 700 block of Sixth Street Southwest on in the early hours of Saturday morning. Police had not released the name of the victim, nor the names of any suspects.

Later Saturday evening on the west side of town, an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest and taken to UVA Medical Center to be treated. He is expected to recover. In that incident, police made two arrests. Eighteen-year-old Page Street resident Calvin Earl Maupin was charged with two felony counts of shooting into an occupied vehicle and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection with the shooting.

Robert Jason Burrell, 22, who was a passenger in the victim’s vehicle, was also charged—with one felony count of intentionally discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle.

Both subjects are being held without bond at the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail.
