Man Shot Across Street From Herndon High School, Police Looking For 2 Suspects

A 21-year-old male was shot across the street from Herndon High School in the 700 block of Bennett Street on Wednesday, Jan. 18, around 3:30 p.m.

The victim was treated for a gunshot wound to his leg at a local hospital and was released, according to the Herndon Police Department.
