Joshua Anthony Sumter, 18, was apprehended in southern Stafford County around 5:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to a news release from the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said that Sumter fired multiple shots at a Stafford County deputy sheriff as the deputy responded to a call about a break-in on Windsor Ridge Court in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
The deputy sheriff was taken to the hospital in serious condition with extensive but non-life threatening injuries.
Before his arrest, authorities said Sumter was considered armed and dangerous, and issued a warrant for him for attempted capital murder.
