Grand jury to get charges in Va. mall shooting

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. —  The case against a man charged with shooting two women at a community college inside a Christiansburg mall is headed to a grand jury.

Media outlets report that 19-year-old Neil MacInnis waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Montgomery County General District Court on Tuesday.

MacInnis faces malicious wounding and weapons charges in the April 12 shooting at a satellite campus of New River Community College.

Part-time employee Taylor Sharpe and student Kristina Bousserghine were shot before the suspect was subdued by an off-duty security guard and Christiansburg police officers. The women are recovering from their injuries. Both attended Tuesday’s hearing.

MacInnis was a student at the college. He is being held at Western Virginia Regional Jail.
