Loudoun County, VA – A Virginia man has been charged with attempted capital murder in relation to the shooting incident which occurred on January 17, 2019, in Paeonian Springs.

On January 17th, deputies from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) responded to the 39000 block of Peacock Circle in Paeonian Springs ‪around 3:30 p.m. for a trespassing complaint.
