After a shooting on Thursday in New Market, both of the victims who were slain have been identified, and a juvenile relative has been taken into custody in connection with the incident. After receiving a complaint about a possible instance of domestic violence on Thursday at 12:20 p.m., deputies from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) went to the 100-block of Rose Valley Drive in New Market to investigate the incident.
Ann Ferrell, who was 64 years old, and Charlie Walker, who was 31 years old, were found dead at the scene of the shooting, according to the Madison County Coroner Tyler Berryhill. The adolescent was taken into custody at approximately 12:30 in the morning on Friday, according to the MCSO. The kid is facing three counts of murder as well as one count of attempted murder for their alleged involvement in the crime. The Neaves Davis Center for Children is the location of these events currently.
The relationship between the juvenile who was detained and charged and the victims was verified by the MCSO as being familial. According to the investigators, the adolescent fled the residence in one of the victim’s automobiles, which prompted the deputies to go after the vehicle. After being involved in a collision during the pursuit, the minor was reportedly taken into custody on Winchester Road.
