LAKE RIDGE, Va. – Police found a man behind the wheel of an SUV who was threatening suicide this morning. That man was said to be armed with a long gun.

Police in Prince William County were called about 7:45 a.m. to a house on Ripple Creek Court in Lake Ridge after a report of a suicidal subject. The man apparently left the house in an SUV prior to police arriving at the scene. According to initial reports, police were informed the man was armed, and they told the man’s wife to remain outside of her home in case he returned.

Police cruisers with sirens activated fanned out across the area searching for the SUV using information from the SUV’s license plates.

A Prince William police officer spotted the SUV on the Occoquan River bridge on Va. 123 about 8 a.m. Police followed the SUV into Occoquan Regional Park just across the bridge in Fairfax County where the man stopped for police.

What is this?

The man will be evaluated and no charges are pending at this time, said Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok.
