In a morning update on 15 February 2020, authorities revealed that Norwood was still at large, writing, “Fauquier Sheriff’s deputies and assisting law enforcement agencies continued to search for 17-year-old Levi Norwood overnight in the Midland area of Fauquier County.

We continue to advise residents in the area to shelter in place and appreciate their cooperation and support during this search effort. Law enforcement will continue to search for a large area of woodland, fields, and outbuildings. If you live in the area expect a visit from law enforcement to check on your welfare.”
In the news release, the Sheriff’s Department said that at 9:35 p.m. on February 14, the incident was “still very fluid and on-going. There remains a very large law enforcement presence in the 12000 blocks of Elk Run Road. Residents are urged to continue to remain sheltered in place until notified otherwise by law enforcement.”
Initially, authorities believed that the shooter was “barricaded in the house on Elk Run Road.”
The Sheriff’s Department responded to the shooting at 6 p.m. on Valentine’s Day in the 12000 blocks of Elk Run Rd in the Midland area. “The male caller advised he arrived home and when he entered the residence he observed his wife and a 7-year-old child deceased from apparent gunshot wounds,” the statement says. (It was later updated that the deceased child was 6.)
“The caller was confronted by a 17-year-old male family member who fired several gunshots at the caller. The caller retreated from the residence and called 911. The male caller was transported with injuries by EMS to a local emergency room. There is a very large law enforcement presence in the area and citizens in the area are being urged to shelter in place.” Authorities later said the male caller was Norwood’s dad.
