HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Hampton detectives have arrested a man they believe is responsible for a shooting at the Michael’s Mews Townhomes last Tuesday.

Clyde Weston Boyce, 42, of Hampton, turned himself in at Hampton Police Division headquarters Wednesday. He was charged with maiming, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, obstructing justice, shooting at an occupied vehicle, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The charges are related to an April 21 shooting near the intersection Hampton Roads Center Parkway and Big Bethel Road.

After a 911 call, officers responded to the 200 block of Ridge Wood Drive at 11:34 p.m. and found a man with several gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. The victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. He remains hospitalized in critical, but stable condition, according to police.

Investigators say Boyce shot the victim while he was sitting in a vehicle in front his residence. Police say Boyce and the victim know each other.

At the time of his arrest, Boyce was also served outstanding warrants for an incident on March 24 in the 1800 block of Beall Drive, which is also the location of his last known address. Those warrants were for malicious wounding by mob, abduction, conspiracy to commit a felony, two counts of use of a firearm in commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Boyce is being held at Hampton City Jail.
