A man wanted in Virginia on attempted murder and other charges was arrested Thursday at work. Clarence Elwood Bowden, 42, was arrested without incident at Marsh Furniture on S. Centennial Street, the U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release.
According to reports, Bowden was wanted in connection with a Nov. 24 incident in Richmond. Law enforcement officials allege Bowden fired shots at a house, and the house’s occupant was struck in the leg after the shots went through the door.
Bowden left in his SUV only after his gun apparently malfunctioned, law enforcement officials said.
Bowden was charged on outstanding warrants for attempted first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted violent felon and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
He is being held in the Guilford County Jail in High Point under a $1 million secured bond.
