RICHMOND COUNTY, Va. — Deputies have arrested the man who allegedly wounded two people in a double shooting in Warsaw early Saturday morning.

After a search by local, state, and federal law enforcement with tips from the community, Tyron “Bundy” Holmes was arrested and charged with five felonies related to the shooting.

Holmes is being held pending a bond hearing and arraignment in Richmond County Courts.

It all started when deputies received a call about a large crowd at the 7-Eleven on Richmond Road just before 4 a.m.

However, officials said that when deputies showed up the crowd, which officials said was from a “large party from an adjacent county,” took off.

“While still on scene, deputies became aware of a shooting nearby in the area of Historyland Highway near Islington Road,” Richmond County Sheriff Steve Smith said.
