A Charleston attorney, who recently turned in his notice of resignation at the West Virginia Attorney General's office, is in custody after a police standoff in Charleston.

Police say at 9:30 a.m. Aug. 12, Mark Bramble fired multiple shots at officers from inside his home on 105 Cornwall Lane.  His wife called 911 earlier that morning and was removed safely from the home.

Bramble later was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Sherwood Forest Road was blocked at Corridor G for a few hours and residents were asked to stay inside their homes until the situation was resolved.  Nearby Kenna Elementary School also was placed on lockdown.

In an Aug. 12 news conference focusing on Medicare scams, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey took a brief time to mention today's standoff, saying he was saddened by the incident.

Morrisey released a statement earlier that day after the arrest, saying his office heard reports that the incident involved Bramble.

Bramble was hired to work in the workers compensation division in June of last year and resigned last week.  His resignation would go into effect Aug. 30.

"I am deeply saddened by the reports about one of the attorneys in the Workers Compensation Division of the Attorney General's Office allegedly being involved in a shooting incident in Charleston earlier today," Morrisey said in a released statement.

"We are relieved that no one in his family or neighborhood was injured and that all members of the law enforcement community are safe," Morrisey continued.
