Tuesday night, March 9, 2021 officers were dispatched to Marsh Creek Apartments after we received a call from a frantic person stating that someone had just shot at them. Officers learned that a dispute had broken out between a tenant, identified as 60-year-old Hal Flood, and a man, who had had been staying with Flood for a few weeks. The man had invited some friends over and Flood refused to let the man and his friends enter the apartment and that’s when things got ugly. During the dispute, Flood discharged a firearm in the parking lot towards the group who had come to his apartment. Fortunately, no one was injured! Upon arrival officers attempted to make contact with Flood, who stated by phone he was not in the area.
Officers remained vigilant and in the area during the early morning hours, they located Flood in the apartment complex and safely took him into custody. When searched, officers located a concealed fixed-blade knife on Flood.
Flood was booked into county jail for assault with a firearm, discharge of a firearm and carrying a concealed dirk or dagger.
According to an internet search, in 1998 Flood was found guilty of evading a vehicle operated by a pursuing peace officer resulting in serious bodily injury, in Richmond on May 22, 1994.
