After an almost 16-hour search, Powhatan sheriff’s deputies arrested Woodfin yesterday about 1:30 p.m. in the 2700 block of Red Lane Road. He had been detained at gunpoint by a homeowner who recognized Woodfin after he rang the doorbell to ask to use the phone.
“With the help of the citizens, this was brought to a successful end,” said Powhatan Chief Deputy Daniel K. Giardini, who added that this was the second slaying in Powhatan in two months. Before this summer, the county had gone about five years without a homicide, he said.
Woodfin had been missing since just after the shooting, when he walked back into the house, dropped off the shotgun and took some money before leaving on foot, Ridout said.

Don't quite agree with the 'no good outcome' statement. I do understand being PC in keeping with the story.
