Authorities in Virginia say a man intentionally rammed into two pedestrians, leaving one dead, after he argued with his father, stormed out of the house and drove away.

According to police reports obtained by WTVR, 22-year-old Daniel N. Anderson called the Chesterfield Emergency Communications Center around 7 p.m. on March 25, and “identified himself, and made multiple threatening statements, including threats to shoot a school, bomb a building, and assault police officers.”

Officers arrived at the scene and found a motor vehicle crash involving a 2012 Hyundai and two pedestrians, officials said.

Investigators determined the driver of the vehicle, identified as Anderson, was also the same man who had called emergency services and made threatening statements.

Anderson was detained at the scene and the pedestrians were transported to a local hospital.

Authorities said 42-year-old Shaundra Bizzell died from her injuries. Family members told police that she was walking with her husband when Anderson hit them. Officials did not provide an update on the husband.

Investigators believe Anderson intentionally steered his vehicle toward the pedestrians.

Anderson was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, malicious wounding, making threats of death or bodily injury and making threats to bomb or damage buildings, authorities said.
