Police: Va. man shot at lawyer in custody dispute
CHESTERFIELD, Va. – Police say a 41-year-old man accused of shooting at the opposing attorney in his child custody case faces attempted murder and other charges.
Mark M. Low also is charged with abduction, use of a firearm in a felony and shooting into an occupied dwelling. He is being held at the Chesterfield County Jail without bond pending a hearing Friday.
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.
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. Pritchard said the suspect and the attorney had been in court earlier Thursday 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.
