LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — After nearly a week-long investigation into the officer-involved shooting that occurred on Longview Road on May 12, the Virginia State Police (VSP) says 34-year-old Ashley D. Biggs Neeley is facing several felony charges.

The incident occurred around 9:37 a.m. when the Lynchburg Police Department (LPD) received a report that Biggs Neeley had allegedly assaulted a Child Protective Services (CPS) employee. As we previously reported, when officers arrived at Biggs Neeley’s apartment in the Longview Road area, she allegedly attacked officers with knives and an officer shot her with his department-issued gun.

Biggs Neeley was taken to Lynchburg General Hospital (LGH) for treatment of her injuries. State Police say LPD officers were not injured during this incident and the CPS employee did not require medical attention.

As VSP’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office’s investigation continued, they located two knives at the scene.

State Police say Biggs Neeley has been charged with the following:

  • Two misdemeanor counts of assault and battery
  • Assault on a law enforcement officer
  • Felony count of attempted malicious wounding of a law enforcement officer 

She is still being treated at LGH and is in the custody of the Blue Ridge Regional Jail.

VSP says the shooting remains under investigation and once it is complete, their findings will be sent over to the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office for a final review and adjudication.
