CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – Chesterfield Police have arrested a 21-year-old man in connection to a domestic-related double shooting that left two men wounded on Thursday morning.

Desean C. Davis was arrested on Monday, Nov. 18, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.

On November 14, police were called to the 3500 block of Colonnade Road not far from Colonial Heights at 11:42 a.m.

"Upon arrival, police found evidence of a shooting and learned that two male victims had been taken to an area hospital with gunshot wounds," said a police spokesperson.
