Brothers Charged with Attempted Murder in Virginia Shooting

Two brothers have been charged with attempted murder in connection to a shooting in Virginia on Saturday. 

32-year-old Torisa Wallace and 35-year-old Teriko Wallace were charged with Second Degree Attempted Murder,  Second Degree Assault and being a Felon in Possession of a firearm. 

The charges stem from an incident Saturday when police responded to the 500 Block of Chestnut Street just after 1:00 a.m. on reports of a shooting. 

Police located the victim, identified as Juan Love, with a gunshot wound to his left forearm.

Authorities arrested the Wallace brothers in connection to the shooting.

Police say Torisa Wallace and the victim got into a fight at the Mirage bar earlier in the night.

According to the criminal complaint, Teriko Wallace had also fought with the victim near the Coates Hotel.

Surveillance video captured the shots being fired.  Police say around ten shots were fired.  They located multiple spent 380 caliber casings on the ground, and a bullet hole in the Hallmark Card Shop.

Police say Torisa is seen on video running down the 400 block South Alley with what appears to be a handgun in his right hand.

Seconds later, several more gunshots were heard, and police say those shots did not come from Torisa Wallace. It’s unclear where the shots came from.

Police have not located the firearms used in the shooting.

If convicted, both men could face up to 32 years behind bars.
