Chesterfield man charged with attempted capital murder in standoff

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A man who police say fired at officers during a standoff at a Midlothian Turnpike now faces attempted capital murder charges.

Paris A. Loving-Johnson shot at an officer from inside a room at the Cloverleaf Inn Motel around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday, according to police. Detectives were responding to a call from a woman who said her boyfriend had shot at her in the hotel when the man fired the shot at arriving officers.

Officers called for back up and shut down Midlothian Turnpike in both directions between German School and Covington roads for around three hours while they negotiated with the man. People in nearby businesses, including NBC12 and the Richmond Outreach Center, were ordered to stay indoors. He finally surrendered around 6:45 p.m.

Loving-Johnson, 22, of Chesterfield faces one count of attempted capital murder of a police officer, another of attempted murder in the first degree and was served with warrants for two counts of domestic assault and battery, failure to pay child support and felony destruction of property.
