CHESTERFIELD, Va. - Police say a man shot at the opposing attorney in his child custody case in Virginia.
Chesterfield Police Capt. David Pritchard says the man fired one shot at the entrance to a law office across from the Chesterfield County Courthouse around 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Neither the shooter nor the attorney was immediately identified.
Pritchard says police believe the man fired one shot, which missed the attorney. Two others received minor injuries as they tried to run away from the scene.
The shooter is in custody but has not yet been charged.
Pritchard says the man and the attorney had been in court Thursday morning for a hearing. The shooter was arrested at the scene by an off-duty Capitol police officer who was there on personal business and a Chesterfield officer.
