Lynchburg police arrested an Amherst man wanted in connection with a shooting that left a woman injured last month.
Nicholas Bernard Jones, 37, was taken into custody Tuesday night following a traffic stop, Lynchburg police said in a news release Wednesday.
Jones is charged with malicious wounding, possession of a firearm by convicted felon, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, three counts of shooting into an occupied dwelling, possession of marijuana, and driving on a suspended or revoked license, police said.
The charges stem from an Aug. 19 incident, in which officers responded to the 1100-block of Buchanan Street at 2:42 p.m. for a report of malicious wounding, according to an earlier news release. A woman, who police did not identify, was taken to the hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
Jones is being held at the Lynchburg Adult Detention Center without bond. He was arraigned in Lynchburg General District Court on Wednesday and was appointed a public defender, court records show.
