FREDERICKSBURG, VA — A man fired a single gunshot at a car parked at a gas pump at a Wawa convenience store in Fredericksburg early Sunday morning, according to the Fredericksburg Police Department. After an employee call 9-1-1, the police responded and located the driver of the car near where the suspect fired. The victim was not injured.

The police received the call around 2:30 a.m. Sunday from the Wawa employee at 2390 Plank Rd.. The victim reportedly told the police that an unknown male was standing alone in front of Wawa and began an argument with him.

The victim started pumping gas when three males exited the store and started walking toward a parked vehicle with the suspect. The suspect then pulled a gun from the car, pointed it toward the victim and fired it into the gas pump ceiling. The suspect and three associates left the Wawa in a white four-door Lincoln sedan, the Fredericksburg police said.

The suspect is described as light skinned black male, about five-feet seven-inches tall, wearing a black hat and black hooded-sweatshirt.

The police said the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 540-373-3122. To make an anonymous tip, people can send a text to “847-411” and text “FPDtip” followed by the tip.
