A 48-year-old King George man is recovering from a shooting Saturday afternoon, with the suspect now in custody, according to the Fredericksburg Police Department.

D’Andre Vontez Caleb-Hill, 19, of Stafford is charged with attempted homicide, the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, unlawful shooting in public resulting in injury and hit and run. 

According to police, at 3:45 p.m. Saturday, the victim was in the parking lot of the Giant store at Eagle Village, reportedly to meet a man in the parking lot for a drug transaction.

The transaction turned into an attempted robbery, according to police. During the dispute, the victim slashed one of the tires of Caleb-Hill's Toyota Camry. 

Police allege Caleb-Hill then shot the victim in the upper torso. The suspect allegedly got in his car and fled the scene, striking another car as he exited the shopping center.

The victim drove himself to Mary Washington Hospital in his own vehicle, where hospital staff contacted police. The victim is expected to recover from his injuries.  

Following the incident, Caleb-Hill reportedly abandoned his Camry at the Taco Bell in the Fredericksburg Shopping Center. While police were working at the scene, an employee of a nearby auto parts store informed officers that a suspicious man had entered the store and asked for a phone to call a ride. After police connected Caleb-Hill to the abandoned car, he was arrested.

Trevor James Stevick, 18, has been charged as an accessory after the fact. Stevick was allegedly present during the shooting and located later at his Fredericksburg home, according to police.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the case can contact Detective Betsy Mason at 540-654-5934.
