MIDDLESEX COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A father is charged with several crimes after investigators said he took aim and fired at his daughter’s friends.

Carlton Walker Jr. is charged with two counts of abduction, two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and two counts of firing into an occupied vehicle in connection to the Oct. 5 shooting.

Walker, investigators said, held two teenagers at gunpoint with a shotgun when they dropped his daughter off at his home. Walker was upset, investigators said, because the friends brought his daughter home late — after 12:30 a.m.

When the friends tried to leave, Walker blocked the driveway, according to investigator. He then pulled out a shotgun and ordered his wife to call police.

He wanted the friends charged with abduction. But when deputies arrived, it was the father charged with the crimes.
