A 26-year-old man wanted in connection with an attempted murder in Richmond surrendered to a SWAT team this morning after an overnight standoff, a Richmond police lieutenant said. A special investigations unit located attempted murder suspect Todd Gillard, of Richmond, as he was going into an apartment at Gately Avenue and Ells Street around 10 p.m., Lt. Bisa French said.
A SWAT team surrounded the apartment and was in contact with Gillard. They negotiated with him throughout the night until he surrendered around 5 a.m. and was taken into custody, French said. Gillard had a $1.5 million arrest warrant out for him in connection with a February attempted murder, French said. No one was injured in the standoff, she said.
