According to Winchester Police, Reynolds fired a handgun toward Megan Griffin on Aug. 10, 2018. Griffin was wounded, possibly by a fragment of a bullet, and fled the scene without seeking local medical attention. Police said the wound was not consistent with a bullet wound.

Witnesses said Reynolds and Griffin had been arguing prior to the shot being fired.

Griffin told police she was sitting on the ground at an auto repair shop on North Highland Street when Reynolds cursed her, pulled a gun and fired at her. Both fled the scene.

Officers later found the weapon underneath a tire at the scene.

Griffin was located on Aug. 25, two days after Reynolds was arrested.
