JOLLETT HOLLOW, June 29 — The Page County Sheriff’s Office continues to search for a local man they believe were linked to or involved in a fatal shooting on Thursday along Jollett Road. The suspect is Timothy Thomas Comer.

At about 5:05 p.m. on June 29, the Page County Emergency Communications Center (ECC) received a 911 call in reference to a “man down” in the 5600 block of Jollett Road. The site actually has an Elkton mailing address, but sits within the southern boundary of Page County.

Upon the arrival of first responders from fire, emergency medical services (EMS) and law enforcement, a male identified as Gregory Lee Williams, 69, was “located on his property deceased from an apparent gunshot wound,” according to a press release issued on Saturday by the Sheriff’s Office.

The incident was treated as a homicide and investigators from the Sheriff’s Office launched an investigation, while the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations assisted with processing the scene. Commonwealth’s Attorney Bryan Cave was made aware at the beginning of the incident and has been providing resources from his office as needed, according to the press release. The body was transported to the Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Manassas for an autopsy.

Investigators are currently searching for a person and vehicle of interest. The person of interest is identified as Timothy Thomas Comer, a 55-year-old white male born on July 17, 1967. Comer should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

The “vehicle of interest” seen below HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AND LOCATED.
