Reston Teenager Seriously Injured in Shooting

RESTON, Va. — Police say a northern Virginia man is facing a weapon charge in connection with a shooting that seriously wounded a Reston teenager.

Reston police say a 17-year-old boy is being treated in a hospital with life-threatening injuries after being shot Friday morning.

Police say they’ve arrested an acquaintance of the teenager, 26-year-old Javier DeJesus Martinez, and charged him with illegal firearm possession.

No phone number for Martinez could immediately be found. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Police say they’re trying to determine whether the shooting was accidental or intentional.
