ORIGINAL REPORT: A total of five suspects have been charged in the Jan. 8 shooting death of Fabian Sosa, 27, of Warrenton. On Tuesday morning, Jan.  14, Warrenton Police detectives charged two men in connection with the shooting, which resulted in Sosa's death and also seriously injured two other men. Two women were charged yesterday and were already in custody; one suspect remains at large.

Sosa was found shot to death in an apartment on Jackson Street Wednesday morning, Jan. 8. Two other men were found suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds after police were summoned to the apartment complex by neighbors, who reported yelling and gunshots at 4 a.m. 

Warrenton Town Manager Brandie Schaeffer said the two injured men remain hospitalized. 

According to a Warrenton Police Department press release, Jaden Lawrence Staples, 18, of Detroit, Michigan, was charged Tuesday, Jan. 14 with accessory to murder after the fact. Terrell Jonathan Tucker, 20, of Woodstock, Virginia, was also charged with accessory to murder after the fact.

Both Staples and Tucker are in custody and are being held in an out-of-state detention facility. 

Alexander Golden, 18, of Detroit, Michigan, is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and is still wanted. It is believed Golden is currently in the Detroit area. Police said he may be armed and dangerous.

On Monday, Jan. 13, Warrenton Interim Police Chief Tim Carter said that two women had been charged with one felony each. Makoya Denham, 21, of Detroit, Michigan, was charged with accessory to murder after the fact and Emily Race, 19, of Warrenton, was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

Denham and Race had been incarcerated on unrelated charges, Denham in a local regional detention facility and Race in a detention facility in another state.

Carter said that the investigation has determined that Sosa and the two other men injured in the shooting were the targets of this crime. “This shooting was not a random act,” he emphasized.

This is so sad but no one could see where it says Feb 13, instead of Jan 13. Should really proofread before publishing.

This is no different than a foreign invasion. Their goals are identical.

So in the last couple of months, we have had shooting from Fredricksburg and Stafford thugs, local thugs, Michigan thugs, and the answer is to disarm law abiding Fauquier citizens.

Is this really the best those who are protected with taxpayer provided armed guards can come up with?
