LURAY, June 27 ― A Shenandoah man was indicted last Tuesday by a Page County grand jury for shooting his 61-year-old father.

Travis Allen Grimsley, 27, faces six indictments, including malicious wounding, reckless handling of a firearm, discharging a firearm in an occupied dwelling and three counts of use of fire use of a firearm in commission of a felony, including aggravated malicious wounding.

Grimsley, who was 26 at the time, was initially charged with aggravated malicious wounding and three gun-related charges following the March shooting.

The shooting occurred around 1:46 a.m. on March 29, according to the Page County Sheriff's Office, at 1772 Comertown Road, near Shenandoah, where Grimsley and his father both resided.

Emergency responders arrived to find Allen Keith Comer, 61, suffering a single gunshot wound to the upper leg. He was transported to the U.Va. Medical Center in Charlottesville, and listed in fair condition.

According to court records, Grimsley allegedly shot Comer with a 12-gauge shotgun after struggling for control of the gun, following an argument between the two. The residence was occupied at the time of the shooting “by individuals other than the alleged shooter,” according to a criminal complaint.

A bond hearing and further court proceedings were scheduled in Page County Circuit Court on Wednesday, July 6.
