Chesterfield police say a woman and two boys have been shot at a townhouse and a 35-year-old man was arrested a short time later.Did you notice he was not a felon in possession of a gun? That means that up until yesterday he was a lawful gun owner, just like so many, completely unfit to own guns but in possession of one nonetheless.
Lt. Randy Horowitz says officers heard gunfire upon arriving at the scene Thursday night. The suspect fled but was quickly arrested.
Michael Derrick Williams of Chesterfield was charged with three counts each of malicious wounding and felony use of a firearm, and one count each of burglary and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
The boys, ages 11 and 16, were in critical condition at VCU Medical Center. Horowitz says the woman had less serious injuries. Their identities weren't immediately released.
Williams was held without bond in the Chesterfield County Jail. It wasn't immediately known whether he had an attorney.
