CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) — An 18-year-old man suspected of shooting and wounding two women at a community college in Virginia has been appointed an attorney at his initial court appearance.

Neil Allan MacInnis was asked by a judge Monday if he understood the charges against him. He replied in the affirmative. He did not enter a plea in Montgomery County General District Court.

MacInnis is accused in the shooting incident Friday at a satellite campus of New River Community College at a mall in Christiansburg. He is charged with two counts each of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and malicious wounding.
