Arrest made in shooting that left woman injured in Hampton

Asron Marquis Sellers also faces charges for a deadly shooting that happened days later in Newport News.

HAMPTON, Va. — A woman was shot near the intersection of Big Bethel Road and W. Mercury Boulevard on Sunday, January 23.

The Hampton Police Division said officers were called just after 10:30 p.m. to help someone who had been shot in the 4000 block of W. Mercury Blvd., but by the time they got there, a private car had already driven the victim to a hospital.

The police division hasn't shared the victim's name or age. She's expected to be okay.

Investigators think the woman had agreed to meet an acquaintance in that area. Other than that, police said the circumstances leading up to the shooting and its motive were still under investigation.

On January 29, Hampton Police said they had arrested 21-year-old Asron Marquis Sellers and charged him with the following:

  • One count of Malicious Wounding
  • One count of Attempted Robbery
  • Three counts of Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony
  • One count of Shooting in an Occupied Vehicle

Newport News Police have also charged Sellers with a separate, deadly shooting that happened days later on January 26.

Sellers is currently in custody at the Newport News City Jail.
