Man accused of committing homicide in Virginia back in 2014

A person accused of homicide back in July 2014 has recently been apprehended by police. The first incident first took place on an early morning in July 2014, when police responded to a report of shots being fired in the area. When police arrived at West Queen Street in Hampton, Virginia, they found a 25-year-old person suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds. Later in the same area, they found a man on the sidewalk of North Back River Road dead.

Then, in February 2015, a police officer ran into a man he deemed suspicious on LaSalle Avenue. The man reportedly gave false information and ran from the officer. Following a chase, the man allegedly pulled a gun; the office took cover and the man left the scene.

The run did not last forever though, as the man was recently found and arrested in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He now faces a long list of serious charges including assault on a law enforcement officer, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, shooting into an occupied dwelling, aggravated maiming and murder.

Under such a long list of serious charges, one can only hope, for his sake, that he plans to enter the courts and face the charges with a strong legal team at his side. Whenever one faces criminal charges, it is important to not only understand the severity of the charges, but to find a strong criminal defense team to help fight the charges. Having a strong team at your side could mean the difference between freedom and a lifetime behind bars.
