Carlton Walker Accused Of Shooting At Daughter's Friends After Missed Curfew

An angry Virginia father allegedly held two teens at gunpoint and shot at their car when they brought his daughter home two hours past her designated curfew.

Carlton Walker Jr., of Middlesex County, has been charged with two counts of abduction, two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and two counts of firing into an occupied vehicle.

According to the WTVR, Walker's charges stem from an Oct. 5 incident, in which he allegedly held to teens at gunpoint when they brought his daughter home after 12:30 a.m.

After he blocked the teen's car in with his vehicle, Walker reportedly kept his shotgun aimed at the teens while telling his wife to call 911.

When the teens attempted to drive off, Walker allegedly fired at the car, damaging the rear bumper, The Dreamin' Demon reported.

"I didn't know he was that crazy," Carlene Taylor, an occupant inside the vehicle, told WTVR.

The Middlesex County Sheriff's Office dismissed Walker's alleged demands to have the teens arrested with abduction, and instead took him into custody.

If convicted, Walker faces up to five years in jail for each felony firearm charge, up to 10 years on each abduction charge, and another 10 years for each of the firing into an occupied vehicle charges, according to the Legislative Information System.
