Dispute Turns to Shooting – Arsonist Arrested

A family dispute in Vienna on Tuesday night turned into a violent scene when one half-brother shot the other. 34 year old John Conrad was shot in the face with a 38 caliber handgun. 50 year old Scott Baker was the shooter. The men live together on 34th Street in Vienna. Conrad was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital and Baker was arrested and charged with attempted murder.

A Vienna man is behind bars for arson after setting fire to his apartment at Wyndham Knob. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the fire with the Vienna Fire Department. Firefighters removed a smoldering charcoal grill from the garage and inside the apartment they discovered burns, which appeared to be the result of someone spraying and igniting lighter fluid on the carpet. A dog inside the apartment was put into the custody of the Humane Society. 31 year old Brian Cable was arrested and charged with the crime.

A Vienna man will receive more than $2.5 million in punitive damages from a mortgage service company after they failed to investigate his repeated disputes of his credit report. David Daugherty sued Equifax and Ocwen Loan Serving in 2014. Equifax settled without going to trial. This week a federal jury awarded Daugherty the funds after a six-day jury trail. His attorney said the company was willfully negligent in their violations of the Fair Credit and Reporting Act.
