The man in custody in connection to a series of violent events early Saturday morning is facing many charges — including three counts of attempted murder.
A lone gunman robbed a gas station on Kenaston Boulevard at gunpoint just after 3:30 a.m.
Police spotted the suspect about half an hour later at Regent Avenue and Stapon Road.
There was a pursuit up eastbound Regent as the suspect and police exchanged gunfire.
Eventually the suspect made his way to Springfield Road west of Lagimodiere Boulevard, and came to a dead end — where he was arrested.
Anthony Joseph Raposo, 51, is facing a long list of charges, that includes:
- Three counts of Attempt Murder
