Two Richmond police officers were fired upon early Saturday morning as they were driving through the Mosby Court public housing complex in the city’s East End.

About 1:40 a.m. Saturday, the two officers reported to dispatch that they had been fired on in the area of Spotsylvania and Accommodation streets, police said. The officers were not injured, and the police vehicle was not struck by gunfire.

Minutes after the single shot was fired, other officers were able to arrest a suspect, a 17-year-old male, police said.

The suspect, who was not identified by Richmond police, is charged with attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and related firearm charges, including use of a firearm in a felony and possession of a firearm by a juvenile.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective S. Odic at (804) 229-8175 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
