Investigators from the Clarke County Sherrif’s office conducted several interviews, searched the crime scene, and found inconsistencies with the victim’s portrayal of the incident. The 19-year-old victim, Gustavo Edenlison Munoz-Argumedo, from Winchester, Virginia was re-interviewed and confirmed police suspicions. Through the course of the investigation police have learned that the shooting incident, as originally reported, was false. The shooting was accidental. Munoz-Argumedo was handling a pistol while traveling down Senseny Road in the early morning hours of June 10, 2012. The pistol discharged and Munoz-Argumedo was shot in the lower leg.
Investigators plan to consult with the Commonwealth’s Attorney about charges for the false report.
