A Sterling man was arrested in Florida on Monday in connection to a May 29 shooting outside a Sterling restaurant, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
Olbin A. Echeverria Madrid, 33, is being held at the Leon County Detention Center in Tallahassee on a Fugitive of Justice warrant out of Loudoun County.
Charges against Echeverria Madrid include attempted first-degree murder, shooting from a vehicle, shooting to maim or kill, and attempted shooting to maim or kill.
LCSO deputies responded around 11:15 p.m. on May 29 to Tommy’s Place II, located in the 150 block of Enterprise St., for the reported shooting.
The male suspect was reportedly told to leave the restaurant multiple times, after which he threatened an employee on his way out.
A short time later he then fired a single shot in the employee’s direction from his truck, striking a window, the report states.
An armed security guard then fired multiple shots at the suspect’s vehicle — a black Toyota Tundra — as the suspect fled the scene, per the LCSO.
A customer inside the restaurant reportedly received minor injuries, though authorities did not disclose the nature of the injuries or how they were sustained.
LCSO detectives later identified Echeverria Madrid as the suspect. He was reportedly located in Tallahassee with the assistance of the Tallahassee Police Department.
Echeverria Madrid’s extradition back to Virginia is pending as of Tuesday morning.
