Stafford, VA. A suspect who allegedly shot an adult female in Henrico County on Wednesday night has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after he was discovered by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office in a hotel parking lot in the northern end of the county.

On Wednesday, February 26, 2020, just after 9:00 p.m., the Henrico County Police Division received a call for a domestic related shooting along the 2800 block of Hilliard Road. Officers arrived and immediately encountered an adult female victim who was transported to an area hospital for a significant injury and is currently in stable condition.

Henrico County detectives quickly identified the suspect as Patrick Lamar Jones, 42, of Richmond, VA. Warrants were obtained for attempted murder and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

On Thursday, February 27, 2020, at approximately 6:17 p.m., Stafford deputies responded to the Hampton Inn located at 2925 Jefferson Davis Highway after the suspect was observed in a vehicle in the parking lot.

When Stafford deputies arrived, the suspect began attempting to leave the area. Deputies were able to stop the vehicle at the parking lot entrance. The suspect then brandished a firearm and shot himself in the head.

Jones was transported to a local hospital in life threatening condition where he was later pronounced dead.

The Hilliard Road incident remains under investigation by the Henrico County Police Division.
