Loudoun County, VA – Today, deputies from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 39000 block of Peacock Circle in Paeonian Springs around 3:30 p.m. for a trespassing complaint. The witness stated that a subject reportedly accessed firearms in a trailer on the property and that he was armed and had fired a shot prior to the arrival of deputies.

Information at this time indicates the subject fired several rounds, including firing several shots at deputies. The deputies returned fire before the suspect barricaded himself inside the trailer.

Members of the LCSO established a perimeter and trained LCSO negotiators and crisis intervention trained deputies were on scene.

After brief negotiations, the suspect exited the trailer peacefully and turned himself over to authorities without further incident. The suspect sustained an injury that is believed to be non-life-threatening, and was immediately transported to a local hospital.

More details will be released as they become available.
