Man wanted for Fifeville shooting turns himself in

Charlottesville police say the man wanted on multiple charges after a shooting in the city’s Fifeville neighborhood this past week has turned himself in to authorities.

"Corinthian ‘Zayquan’ Brown turned himself in the CPD this afternoon without incident," the police department said in a statement issued Thursday.

It added that the investigation into the shooting remains under investigation, and the department is encouraging members of the public to come forward with any details related to the matter.

Brown has been charged with malicious wounding, shooting from a vehicle, maliciously shooting at a vehicle and using a firearm during a malicious wounding.

Charlottesville officers responded to a reported shooting on Prospect Avenue in Fifeville around 7:09 p.m. Tuesday.

“Upon arrival, they located a gunshot victim at the scene suffering non-life-threatening injuries,” the police department said in a statement issued roughly an hour after officers responded to the scene.

While initial reports said the shooting occurred on Prospect Avenue, police later said the shooting likely occurred half a mile north.

“Further investigation revealed that the shooting actually occurred at the intersection of Cherry Ave and Ridge St, which was confirmed by evidence found at that scene,” police said in a statement Wednesday.

Police identified Brown as a suspect Wednesday and obtained warrants for his arrest. He turned himself in the next day.

He remained in custody at Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail as of Friday.

Anyone with information regarding Brown or the Tuesday night shooting is encouraged to contact the Charlottesville Police Department at (434) 970-3280 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (434) 977-4000.
