Anthony Ford, Jr., 29, of Richmond, was arrested on Wednesday, Feb. 1 in Richmond in connection to the shooting. He has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Richmond Police detectives worked in coordination with the VCU Police Department and the U.S. Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force for this arrest.

Ford and a second unknown man were previously subjects of an Richmond Police advisory last October which showed video and still photos of the two men.
