ROANOKE (WSLS 10) – Roanoke police have arrested a 21-year-old Roanoke man who now faces multiple charges after Tuesday’s shooting on Chapman Avenue.
Jermaine Amahd Peavy faces two counts of malicious wounding, two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and one county of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
