A man was seriously injured after being first shot and then hit by a car Tuesday night in Prince William County, the county police said.
Police described the shooting, which occurred about 7:30 p.m. at Marumsco Plaza in the Woodbridge area, as not a random event, and said it appeared to involve people acquainted with each other. It apparently followed a fight, police said.
After he was shot, the man was walking on nearby Bayside Avenue when he was struck by a car, the police said. Police said they did not think the vehicle was linked to the shooting.
The matter remained under investigation late Tuesday.
