The Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a double shooting near Lake Anna Tuesday morning.
At about 2 a.m., the sheriff’s office received a report of two teenage girls shot in the 11900 block of Bellefonte Road, authorities said.
Responding deputies said they found a 13-year-old girl dead from apparent gunshot wounds. Her 19-year-old sister was taken to the Medical College of Virginia Hospital in Richmond in serious condition. She had suffered a gunshot wound to the chin, authorities said.
According to the sheriff’s office, the girls apparently were shot by their stepfather.
Authorities say a Spotsylvania County man is accused of shooting his daughter and his stepdaughter at their home.
The sheriff’s office says deputies found 13-year-old Kayla Reynolds dead on the front porch of the family’s home shortly after 1 a.m. today and her 19-year-old sister was flown to VCU Medical Center in Richmond. Her name was not released, but authorities say she’s in stable condition.
Authorities say the 19-year-old woman met them at the door and said her stepfather had shot her and her stepsister.
Investigators say 44-year-old Earl Wayne Reynolds is charged with first-degree murder and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He is jailed on no bond.
