CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) - A suburban Richmond man is set to appear in court a day after police say he tried to shoot an attorney in his child custody case.


Police say 41-year-old Mark Low of Chesterfield fired a rifle at the attorney outside a law office across from the Chesterfield County Courthouse on Thursday. Low was charged with attempted murder, abduction and other charges.


He was held without bond at the Chesterfield County Jail pending Friday's court appearance.


Police say the unidentified attorney and a bystander received minor injuries when they fell while trying to run from the shooting. The shot missed the attorney and hit near the entrance of his office.


An off-duty Capitol police officer and a Chesterfield officer confronted Low with their guns drawn and disarmed him.
