A James City County man was arrested in connection with a December 2020 shooting in Williamsburg that left a man paralyzed.

Alexander Xavier Berkley, 29, was taken into custody in Clarksville, West Virginia and charged with three counts of attempting to commit a non-capital offense, shooting in commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and aggravated malicious wounding. He was also served misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and two counts of brandishing a firearm.

The charges were in relation to a December 26 shooting on Rochambeau Drive, which left the victim seriously injured. At the time, officers described the shooting as an 'isolated incident.'
