ROBBERY/MALICIOUS WOUNDING/USE OF A FIREARM IN THE COMMISSION
OF A FELONY/ARREST: Police arrested an 18-year-old man who allegedly shot a 17-yearold
boy during a robbery that occurred in the 6000 block of Ticonderoga Court around 9:17 p.m.
on Friday, September 17. The victim was transported to the hospital in non life-threatening
condition. Cameron S. Furbush, of 9268 Sprucewood Road in Burke, was apprehended and
charged with robbery, malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
This happened less than a half mile from where I live, and it's a perfect example of why I carry in my quiet, little Burke neighborhood. I would guess that, at the very least, the assailant was involved in gang activity, and, given the fact the victim was able to lead police to a suspect so quickly, I would further guess that he might have known his attacker.
