17-year-old Stafford teen dies in Friday shooting

FAUQUIER CO. – A fatal, officer-involved shooting in Fauquier County remains under investigation by the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Culpeper Field Office Police Shooting Investigation Team.

At about 4 a.m. Friday (Nov. 2), law enforcement were called to the scene of a single-vehicle crash at the intersection of Tacketts Mill Road and Aquia Road in southeastern Fauquier County. When deputies arrived, they found a crashed 2013 Hyundai Elantra abandoned.

Further investigation of the crash led the Fauquier County deputies to a residence in the 12,000 block of Tacketts Mill Road. Because of the residence’s proximity to the Stafford County line and at the request of Fauquier County, Stafford County sheriff’s deputies also responded to the residence.

After Stafford County deputies entered the residence, an altercation ensued when Evan F. Newsom, 17, of Stafford, attacked one of the deputies with a knife. Newsom was subsequently shot and died at the scene. The Stafford County deputy was treated for his injuries at the scene.

The Virginia State Police “Police Shooting Investigative Team” is conducting the investigation into the shooting per the request of both sheriffs’ offices. The name of the deputy involved has not been released.
