Wasn't there anything in the local papers if she really got shot. I didn't see anything at all about a shooting.

She did get shot! Maybe they're not releasing info right now due to an investigation. Does anyone know who shot her?

Saw on the local news tonight where the guy was arrested so I guess it was not an accident. I had the volumne turned down and did't get it all but I thought they said it was a Foster. I may be wrong but some dude was charged.

A football player at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise was charged Monday evening with shooting a woman in the head at a Norton mobile home park last Wednesday.

Melquan Huntley, 21, a third-year student from Newport News, Va., is charged with felony counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm in an occupied dwelling and the unlawful shooting of a person, confirmed Norton Police Department Capt. Roger C. Cooke.

Jahnae Foster, 18, was shot once as Huntley showed a gun to some friends, Cooke confirmed. He would not cite the type or caliber of gun suspected in the shooting.

“This is an open investigation and we’re not going to give out much information,” Cooke said.

Meanwhile, Foster remains hospitalized at Johnson City Medical Center, where she was airlifted Wednesday night.

Huntley is listed on the UVa.-Wise roster as a fullback for the Cavaliers and graduate of Warwick High School out of Newport News.

His status with the school remains uncertain, said college spokeswoman Kathy Still.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Foster and her family during this terrible time,” Still wrote in an email.“Given that charges were filed against Mr. Huntley, our dean of students will take any actions deemed necessary following a thorough but swift review."

Foster was shot after stopping by Huntley’s home at Greene’s Mobile Home Park off Kentucky Avenue to see her friends, Cooke confirmed.

I pray for the girl but also please pray for quann. He would have never intentionally hurt her. Accidents do happen. and I can only imagine what he is going thru as well as the young lady that is fighting for her life. Quann is a good guy and my heart is with all of them.
