A suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a man inside a James City County grocery store. Multiple media outlets report police say 55-year-old Brian Alexander Hicks of Woodbridge was arrested Sunday and charged with second-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Gabriel Ryan Maness.
James City County Police Deputy Chief Steve Rubino says Maness died inside the Farm Fresh on Sunday morning after being shot multiple times. Police say the suspect remained in the store after the shooting and was taken into custody.
Authorities are investigating a motive for the shooting. No other injuries were reported. Hicks is also charged with use of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He’s being held without bond. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
