Culpeper police are looking for a 28-year-old Pittsylvania County man suspected of shooting at another man outside a Culpeper bar early Sunday morning.

Police secured arrest warrants charging Antwain Maurice Jones, of Chatham, Va., with felony attempted malicious wounding, felony use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and misdemeanor reckless handling of a firearm.

Police responded about 12:30 a.m., Sunday, to shots fired calls in the 100 block of East Davis Street at the Hazel River Pub. No one was injured during the shooting incident.

As Officer David Cole responded toward East Davis Street, he spotted two vehicles listed in the police radio broadcast headed south on Madison Road at a high rate of speed.
