Virginia State Police release information about shooting on Busy Lane

One person was injured in a shooting on Busy Lane on Friday 18 November. Now the Virginia State Police have stepped in to help with the investigation and are asking the public to share anything they know.

The Lunenburg County Sheriff’s Office received an emergency call from an apartment building on Busy Lane around 7:45 p.m. Friday, according to Virginia State Police Public Relations Director Corinne Geller. Both MPs and rescue workers went to the site and found a 54-year-old man outside his home suffering from a gunshot wound.

Geller said state police are now looking for two people believed to be responsible for the shooting since they were seen running from the scene. However, Geller could not provide names of the suspects or descriptions.

“No descriptions of either person are available,” she added.

One thing she was quick to say was that this will be investigated as a separate case from the 9/11 murder in Lunenburg County.

“At this stage of the investigation, the (Busy Lane) shooting appears to have been an isolated and targeted incident,” Geller said.

Still no official ID from the murder victim

Geller also provided an update on the Seay Way murder. She said the Richmond Chief Medical Examiner’s office is still working on the case as they have not yet officially confirmed the victim’s identity.

On Friday, November 11, sheriff’s deputies were alerted to a shallow grave discovered on the 200 block of Seay Way in Lunenburg County. Deputies found human remains in the grave and sent the body to the coroner’s office.

The body is believed to be that of 17-year-old Cion ‘CC’ Carroll based on evidence at the scene, according to the AWARE Foundation. Carroll was reported missing from his home off Poorhouse Road in Kenbridge around 10pm on November 2.

“His phone was last pinged at the location of a home owned by a registered sex offender,” according to the AWARE Foundation said in a statement. “After that ping, his phone was dead.”

The Roanoke-based AWARE Foundation helps families find missing loved ones, especially children and youth. The group works with law enforcement to make this happen and helps in cases like this.
