Murder Charge Filed in Leesburg Shooting

A Middleburg man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a Leesburg woman Saturday night.

Darrick Lee Lewis, 30, also is charged with violation of a protective order and a firearms violation.

Police say he went to the Nansemond Street townhouse of Christina Fisher, where an argument ensued. Officers were called to the scene about 6:15 a.m. when a 9-1-1 call was made from the home reporting a verbal domestic dispute.

Upon arrival, the officers found the 34-year-old mother of three suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso. She was flown to an area hospital, where she died.

Investigators determined that Lewis, with whom the victim had a prior relationship, shot her during the argument and left the scene. He was arrested at his home near Middleburg.

Lewis is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
