CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Two people were taken into custody on Monday following a fight in a Christiansburg Walmart that led to a minor drawing a gun.
Town officials say the fight was reported at a Walmart in the 2400 block of North Franklin Street at approximately 7:04 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 15, with the initial callers saying there was at least one person with a gun.
When Christiansburg officers and Montgomery County deputies arrived on the scene, they reportedly found two adults and two minors who were involved in the incident.
According to the town, one of the minors did pull a gun during the fight — which started as a “domestic argument” — but no shots were fired and nobody was injured.
During their investigation, officials say police recovered the gun that was drawn, as well as another weapon from a vehicle belonging to one of the individuals involved in the incident.
The Town of Christiansburg tells WFXR News that 41-year-old Misty Dawn Osborne of Christiansburg, was taken into custody for obstruction of justice.
In addition, a juvenile was reportedly detained and referred to Juvenile Court Services Unit for charges of carrying a concealed weapon, brandishing a firearm, possessing a firearm under the age of 18, and domestic assault.
“The Town of Christiansburg would like to thank the community members who acted quickly to call in the disturbance, and the rapid, professional response by Christiansburg officers and their colleagues at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, who were able to contain the situation before it escalated further,” the town said in a statement Monday night. “We would also like to extend our gratitude to the Blacksburg Police Department for covering other calls in the Town of Christiansburg while our officers responded to the incident at Wal-Mart.”
