A standoff in Virginia lasting hours involving a man wanted for murder ended with his arrest and rescue of a young child, authorities said.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m. on Dec. 17, officers in Henrico County responded to an apartment building in reference to a domestic incident, WRIC reported.
Police said one person at the location refused medical attention and a second person, identified as Kelvin K. Johnson, 27, had barricaded himself and the child in an apartment.

Johnson faces multiple charges, including second-degree murder, firearm counts, domestic assault, abduction and strangulation, according to WRIC.
The station reported Johnson is accused of fatally shooting 23-year-old Edwin Lee Burgess Jr. on Sept. 7.
