KELLER, Va.- One suspect is in custody and authorities are searching for four more suspects wanted in connection with an Accomack County, Va. assault that put a 19-year-old man in the hospital.

Accomack County Sheriff Larry Giddens said that on Thursday, Sept. 3 at approximately 4:03 p.m., the Sheriff's Office received a report of shots fired in the area of the Robinson Trailer Park in Keller. Giddens said that when deputies arrived in the area, they discovered that the suspects had fled the scene and that a 19-year-old male resident of the trailer park had been severely beaten.  The victim was transported by Wachapreague ambulance to Shore Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.  He was released on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Gideens said that during the investigation, information was received that led to the arrest of one suspect and the identity of several other suspects who remain at large. 

Myron Mears, 20, of Keller, was arrested Sept. 8 on a charge of malicious assault. He was released on a $2,500 bond.

Felony warrants have been obtained by the Sheriff's Office charging the four other suspects wanted in connection with the beating. The Sheriff's Office is looking for the following persons:

  • Julian Travis Scarborough, 29, of Painter, is wanted on charges of malicious assault, use of firearm in commission of felony, and possession of firearm by convicted felon.  He is described as a black male, approximately 6-foot-1 and 290 pounds.
