Richmond Times-Dispatch - - METRO2 -

RICH­MOND — A Rich­mond man has turned him­self in to po­lice in con­nec­tion with a shoot­ing in Gilpin Court last week in which the vic­tim limped into the Rich­mond Re­de­vel­op­ment and Hous­ing Author­ity of­fice.

Rod’Que L. Hog­gardJohn­son, 24, of the 200 block of West Char­ity Street turned him­self in Wed­nes­day to the U.S. Mar­shals Re­gional Fugi­tive Task Force. He has been charged with at­tempted mur­der and use of a firearm in com­mis­sion of a felony.

About 9:20 a.m. on Oct. 5, of­fi­cers re­sponded to RRHA’s of­fices at 901 Cham­ber­layne Park­way for the re­port of a per­son shot in the leg.

In­gram Brown, the agency’s di­rec­tor of hu­man re­sources, used her belt as a tourni­quet un­til med­i­cal as­sis­tance ar­rived. The vic­tim was taken to a hospi­tal with a non-life-threat­en­ing wound.

Po­lice de­ter­mined that the shoot­ing oc­curred in the 200 block of West Char­ity Street, the same block where Hog­gard-John­son lives.
