Jones v. Commonwealth (P)

The plain language of Code § 18.2-154, defining the offense of shooting at an occupied vehicle, doesn’t require proof that the shooter was located outside the vehicle. Therefore, the offense can encompass the appellant’s firing multiple shots inside the occupied vehicle.

Conviction affirmed.

Jones v. Commonwealth (P), No. 180052, Dec. 6, 2018. SCV (McCullough) from CAV.
