Three men have been indicted on charges stemming from a chaotic shooting on Bent Mountain last year.

Keith Rahndale Nance, 30; Michael Jamar Nance, 24; and Marcques Jermaine Whorley, 37, were arrested after three people were shot Sept. 6 in the 10000 block of Slings Gap Road in Roanoke County. Whorley was among those shot in a dispute that began over a loose pit bull.

Two groups of people from neighboring homes had a verbal exchange, which progressed into a number of people arming themselves and exchanging gunfire.

Police and search warrants described a scene of bullets scattered around a property and lodged into vehicles that people were dodging behind to avoid gunfire. Police seized more than a dozen firearms.

Keith Nance and Michael Nance, both uninjured and from Roanoke, were arrested in September, and Whorley, of Roanoke County, was arrested in October.

A Roanoke County grand jury returned indictments Friday against Keith Nance on two counts of malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Michael Nance was indicted on a charge of malicious wounding, attempted malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Whorley was indicted on malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony charges.
