Chesterfield County police have arrested a Richmond man in a weekend shooting in which a woman was found with life-threatening injuries in a car along Midlothian Turnpike.

Michael Leonard Dabney, 37, of the 2900 block of Clearfield Street, was charged with malicious wounding, shooting at an occupied vehicle, attempted second-degree murder, felonious use of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Police said their investigation indicates that Dabney and the victim know each other and the shooting is domestic-related.

Officers responded about 11:30 p.m. Friday to a report of someone shooting into a vehicle near the intersection of Midlothian Turnpike and Johnston Willis Drive.

Upon arrival, officers located a woman inside a vehicle with a life-threatening gunshot wound. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Dabney is being held without bond at the Chesterfield Jail.

The shooting was the second in 2½ months along Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield.

On July 1, a driver traveling in the 9400 block of Midlothian Turnpike — less than 2 miles from Friday’s shooting — was shot and wounded during a road rage incident.

Police have identified a Richmond man as the alleged shooter and have obtained seven felony warrants for his arrest. He remains at large.
