January 3, 2019

SCRANTON — Police in Virginia Beach, Virginia, are investigating a shooting that left two people wounded at a New Year’s Eve party hosted by a Lackawanna College athlete.

The incident happened early Tuesday outside a home owned by the father of sophomore wrestler Sczar Charles, WAVY-TV in Portsmouth, Virginia, reported.

Officers called to the home around 2:14 a.m. found two people with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, Virginia Beach police said in a news release. Two possible suspects were located.

Charles told WAVY the shooting happened after individuals he did not know “started some stuff” with one of his friends.

In a statement Thursday, Lackawanna College said it has been made aware of an incident involving one of its students in Virginia Beach but had only limited information about it.
