Drug Suspect Nabbed After Police Chase

A man wanted by Prince William County authorities on felony narcotics-related charges was arrested Friday afternoon after he led deputies on a pursuit through western Loudoun.

Deputies came into contact with the suspect, Shawn K. Murray, 36, of Gainesville, around 4:30 p.m. Nov. 2. Deputies initiated a traffic stop on Harmony Church Road near Hamilton. Murray attempted to elude authorities as he traveled on Harmony Church Road before traveling south on Rt. 15. During the pursuit, the Murray sideswiped one vehicle and rear-ended another in the Gilberts Corner traffic circle, where the pursuit ended.

Murray was taken into custody without further incident and charged in Loudoun with felony reckless driving and driving on a revoked license.
