The Fairfax County Police Department has charged a Potomac Falls man with two felonies after firing two shots at Reston Hospital yesterday.
The incident started just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10, when a man suffering from what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound attempted to enter a locked entrance of the hospital. He apparently fired a handgun, breaking the glass in the door and entered the hospital. Staff members attempted to render aide, but the man displayed the weapon again and allegedly fired a shot inside the building. Hospital personnel convinced him to put the weapon down and then began treatment. He was transported to another hospital for further evaluation and treatment. No one else was injured during the incident.
William Brock, 52, was charged with felony destruction of property and shooting into an occupied building. He remains hospitalized under guard. Upon his release, he will be transferred to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and held without bond.
The firearm was recovered and is being held as evidence. The case remains under investigation.
