NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - A 24-year-old man was arrested and charged with murder following a Newport News double shooting that left a woman hospitalized and a man dead earlier this month.

Robert Damon Stonewall faces a number of charges in the deadly shooting, including first-degree murder, assault, shooting a firearm in a public place, using a firearm in commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Stonewall is accused of being responsible for a July 12 shooting on 28th Street.

The male victim, 24-year-old Brian Austin Moore, of Hampton, was pronounced dead at the scene, and the female, a 21-year-old Washington D.C. resident, remains in the hospital.

Stonewall is currently being held in the Newport News City Jail after he was arrested in Hampton.
