Danville Police arrested 18-year-old Javonte L. Harris in connection with a shooting that happened this morning.
Officers responded to a 911 call for shots fired in the 200 block of Greenwich Circle at about 2:00 a.m. They found that bullets struck two vehicles and a house, but thankfully, no one was injured. The house and one of the vehicles were occupied when Harris shot into them.
Police quickly identified Harris as the shooter and officers apprehended him a short time later in Danville without incident. Investigators charged him with one count of shooting from a vehicle.
Police believe the shooter knew the intended victims and this is an isolated incident.
Harris is being held in the Danville City Jail without bond. Further charges are pending.
The department recognizes the fear that a shooting like this can instill in a community and will be holding a H.E.A.R.T Walk tomorrow so that we can update the residents in person and help them recover.
