BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) – Charges are pending after a man shot at several other people in a Bristol, Virginia fight early Sunday morning, police say.

Detective Sgt. Steve Crawford of Bristol, Virginia Police told News Channel 11 that officers were called to a motel on the 2200 block of Euclid Avenue at 12:40 a.m. on Nov. 7 in reference to shots being fired in the area.

Crawford said that when officers arrived they found a suspect and three individuals who had been in a fight. At some point during the fight, Crawford said the suspect pulled out a handgun and began firing at others nearby.
