Arrest warrants shed new information on Ringgold man shooting father

Zachary Brandon Long

RINGGOLD, Va. (WSET) -- ABC 13 has new information after investigators say a man shot and killed his own father in Ringgold over the weekend.

According to newly obtained arrest warrants, Zackary Long shot his father, David Christopher Long, multiple times.

The warrant says deputies arrested Long and charged him with willfully, deliberately and premeditatedly killing and murdering his father.

It's a first degree murder charge.

The criminal complaint explains how a deputy responding to the shooting went inside the house and found David Long lying in a pool of blood.

The complaint says Zackary Long's girlfriend was there and told the deputy Zackary shot his dad four times.

But, the warrant only lists he shot his father once in the arm and once in the hip.

A court date has not been set for Long.
