Chesterfield County police are investigating after a man was arrested following a barricade situation at a Midlothian home on Thursday night in which he was shot by county police officers.
The man, identified Friday as 50-year-old Bruce W. Terry, was taken to a hospital and remained hospitalized Friday afternoon. He is facing several charges, including domestic assault and abduction.
About 7:35 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a home in the 11300 block of Sunfield Drive after receiving a report that a man had threatened a woman with a knife and had held her against her will. The residence is about a mile south of Genito Road and Hull Street Road.
After responding officers entered the house, police said, Terry exited a bedroom and pointed what appeared to be a long gun at them. The officers fired at Terry, who then went back into the bedroom.
Police said the officers made a tactical withdrawal from the house to get the unharmed woman to safety. Additional personnel were called to the scene, including SWAT team members.
Police said officers deployed a “technological resource” to determine Terry’s location and that he tried to disable it. Officers then used a second “technological measure” and observed that Terry was injured and somewhat lethargic.
SWAT officers then entered the house. Police said Terry had a knife when officers encountered him, but they were able to disarm him and take him into custody. A long gun was observed in the house, police said.
Chesterfield police have obtained several warrants for Terry, of the 11300 block of Sunfield Drive, in connection with Thursday’s incident: domestic assault, abduction and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, along with three counts of brandishing a firearm and three counts of assault on law enforcement.
The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information should call Chesterfield police at (804) 748-1251 or Crime Solvers at (804) 748-0660.
