Virginia State Police are continuing to investigate after a highway shooting left one person injured Tuesday afternoon. 

At 1:08 p.m. on Aug. 22, officers responded to I-66 in Fairfax County after it was reported that shots were fired between two vehicles. 

After investigating, police determined that two Honda sedans were traveling east on I-66 when the adult male driver of a black Honda sedan threw an object at a white Honda sedan while the two vehicles were traveling east on I-66. The driver of the white Honda, 24-year-old Daniel L. Serrano, then fired several rounds at the black Honda. 

Both vehicles then pulled over to the side of the interstate near the 50-mile marker.

Police say Serrano remained at the scene and was taken into custody by state police without incident. He has been charged with one felony count of malicious wounding and one felony count of shooting into an occupied vehicle.

The driver of the black Honda was struck by the gunfire and was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries. An adult female passenger was not injured in the shooting.
