CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) - Chesterfield County police shot and wounded a man they say pointed an unloaded gun at an officer and was wanted on charges of assaulting his wife with a bat as she slept.
  51-year-old Russell D. Hornkohl of Moseley was charged with brandishing a firearm and aggravated malicious wounding upon his release from a hospital Thursday.
Chesterfield police Capt. David Pritchard says Hornkohl ignored orders to drop his weapon when he got out of his car during a traffic stop. Pritchard says Hornkohl was shot in the right arm when he pointed the weapon at officers.
Pritchard says Hornkohl had been sought in the beating of his wife, who suffered head lacerations. The couple had argued earlier.
He's being held without bond pending a court hearing.
