On January 8, 2022, at approximately 9:08 pm, Richmond Police responded to 737 North Third Street in reference to a domestic dispute. The female victim reported that her ex-boyfriend, identified as Logan Browning (30) of Richmond, was armed with a weapon and attempting to enter her residence forcefully.
Mr. Browning eventually forced his way into the residence and attacked the victim. Mr. Browning was able to remove a handgun from the victim during the attack. The female victim and three small children fled the apartment as police arrived. Mr. Browning barricaded himself inside the residence and began firing shots out the windows forcing police to evacuate the building and surrounding apartments while he continued to shoot.
The Richmond Police Emergency Response Unit and Crisis Negotiators were called to the scene and attempted to de-escalate Mr. Browning and plea for his surrender. Mr. Browning refused to surrender and continued to threaten officers and fire shots.
After four hours of intense negotiations, Mr. Browning set fire to the upstairs portion of the apartment, which forced him to exit out the back door armed with the handgun. Officers immediately confronted Mr. Browning upon exit and demanded that he disarm himself and surrender. Officers were eventually able to take Mr. Browning into custody.
Mr. Browning was taken for medical treatment due to injuries he received while forcing his way into the residence. Police will remain at his side and deliver him directly to the Madison County Detention Center when his treatment is complete.
Mr. Browning has been charged with the following:
