Authorities have arrested a James City County man who allegedly shot someone outside of a Game Stop.
On Thursday at approximately 2:16 p.m., Alexander Xavier Berkely, 29, was arrested by the Clarksburg Police Department in Clarksburg, West Virginia according to a Facebook post from the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office.
On Dec. 26 at approximately 10:54 a.m., deputies responded to a shooting at the 800 block of East Rochambeau Drive where a man was transported to a nearby hospital.
The man was taken to Sentara Williamsburg Regional Hospital, “which would have been right around the corner where the event occurred,” according to a statement made Friday by YPSO spokesperson Sgt. Michael “Adam” Cooper.
“The only thing we know about the victim is that he is paralyzed,” said Cooper, who was unable to elaborate further on the extent of the man’s injuries.
Berkley is now charged with three felony counts of attempt to commit a non-capital offense, one count of shooting or stabbing in commission of a felony, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of aggravated malicious wounding, according to the Facebook post.
He was also charged with the following misdemeanors: Disorderly conduct and two counts of brandishing a firearm.
“Berkley is currently being held at the North Central Regional Jail in Doddridge County, West Virginia, and is awaiting extradition back to York County,” YPSO said on its Facebook page.
