Drive By Shooting Suspects Apprehended

According to a Press Release from Wise County Sheriff Ronnie Oakes:
On June 19th, 2018 the Wise County Sheriff's Office received a request at approximately 11 a.m. from the Lee County Sheriff's Office to assist on a call that Lewis Hickman and Paige Carroll had approached a residence in Lee County asking to use the phone. The resident refused to open the door and contacted the police. Wise and Lee County Deputies responded and conducted a search of the area and set up containment. Wise County Sheriff's Office K9 handler Sgt. Vanover and K9 Roane responded with other Wise County Sheriff SRT members to search the area. A Virginia State Police helicopter was also called to assist in the search of the area.
During the search Paige Elizabeth Carroll surrendered to Lee County Deputies on route 58 near the Wise/Lee county line. Wise County SRT and K9 Roane then started traacking through a heavily wooded area near the location of the initial sighting. As the search team was coming up on an open field and abandoned buildings the helicopter (occupants) observed a white male standing in the field appearing to surrender. The search team on the ground took the male into custody and identified him as Aaron Leigh Adams. Search efforts continued with ground units and air support for Lewis Wesley Hickman III for the next several hours. Lee County Deputies continued to patrol the area for the rest of the night.
In the morning hours of June 20th, 2018 the Lee County Sheriff's Office received a call that Lewis Hickman had approached another residence near the Wise/Lee county line requesting to use the phone. A Wise County Sheriff's Office Investigator and Virginia State Police Troopers were near the area and responded. Hickman was locataed in the front yard and taken into custody without incident.
All three subjects were charged with Attempted First Degree Murder, Conspire to Commit Murder, Aggravated Malicious Wounding, Conspire to Commit Malicious Wounding, and the Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony. These charges resulted from a shooting incident that occurred on Back Valley Road in Wise County, Va on June 17th, 2018. Lewis Hickman III was also charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
All three subjects are currently being held with no bond at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Duffield, Va.
