Richmond Police take suspect into custody near Lee Monument

This is two blocks away from me. This story is still unfolding but my first thought is that this building is in an ideal location for someone to carry out a Charles Whitman-like sniper attack. No word yet on what kind of weapon he had. I’m curious to see if it was a sniper rifle.


RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – Richmond Police officers take an armed suspect into custody, near the Robert E. Lee Monument Saturday.

Police said, in a tweet at 8:40 a.m., the suspect was found in a building, no shots were fired and officers were searching the building “for any other threats.”
