Robbery suspect shoots at police in Monticello Village

September 28, 2009

The Virginian-Pilot is reporting:

Police officers searching for a robbery suspect at an apartment complex in the 500 block of Ashlawn Drive were fired upon after spotting the man they were looking for, said a police spokeswoman.

At 7:39 p.m., police were searching the complex when they saw the suspect and he reportedly fired a gun at officers, said Karen Parker-Chesson, police spokeswoman. She did not know whether officers returned fire.

The man then fled on foot to East Little Creek Road and headed west but was apprehended by police a few minutes later in the 500 block of East Little Creek, she said.

His identity was being withheld because he is a person of interest in several other incidents, including the robbery that police were initially investigating.
