Charlottesville PD: New Leads in Officer-Involved Shooting

Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville police say new leads on the weekend officer-involved shooting just off the downtown mall are pouring in. 

Police say Frank Brown, 56, of Albemarle County and Leon Brock, 22, of Culpeper County were involved in an incident just outside the Elks Lodge (I.B.P.O.E. of W. Rivanna #195) on 2nd Street Northwest early Saturday morning, on March 16. According to search warrants, Brown shot Brock after Brock and others jumped him. Charlottesville police Officer Alex Bruner arrived on the scene, told Brown to drop the weapon, and then shot Brown.

A Charlottesville police spokesman says investigators are following up on each individual lead to see if they can clarify exactly what happened inside the Elk's Lodge early Saturday morning that led to the shooting.

Police have taken a notebook containing a list of people inside Elk's Lodge that night.   

"Where we pick it up at is at the scene itself and then we'll start to piece, put the pieces of the puzzle back together from where it all originated and things of that sort, which is all apart of the process for the investigators," said Lt. Ronnie Roberts of the Charlottesville Police Department.  

Brown is listed in fair condition at the University of Virginia Medical Center. A hospital spokesperson won't comment on Brock's condition.

Officer Bruner is currently on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of a Charlottesville Police Department investigation into the shooting.
