UPDATE 4:38 p.m.: The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office released new details in the shooting incident involving two people at the intersection of Route 460 and Route 24 in Campbell County.

Deputies say 45-year-old Maurice Megginson of Appomattox left his car while stopped at a traffic light and started assaulting another driver. Then a fight broke out over a gun that ended with it going off, hurting Megginson and the other driver, according to the sheriff’s office.

An investigation later found that a woman who was a passenger in the driver’s car filed an order of protection against Megginson, which stops him from having any contact with her.

According to the documents from the sheriff’s office, Megginson was charged with assault and battery and a violation of protective order on Thursday, June 9.

The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case. Megginson faces a $4,000 secure bond on the charges.
