For the sake of privacy, authorities are not releasing the name of the victim but 8News did speak with a friend of his on Friday.

“It’s deeply disturbing,” Chesterfield attorney Brian Jones told 8News Friday.

Jones said hearing about what happened to his friend, who he confirmed is a lawyer around 70-years-old, has been difficult to comprehend.

Police said Saturday that the man is in critical but stable condition.

” At this point in the investigation, it does not appear that the victim was targeted due to his employment status as a lawyer,” Colonel Jeffrey S. Katz said in a release.

Police still do not have a suspect description.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660
