Red Roof Inn Murder Suspect Surrenders to Authorities After Talking Over FaceTime

One man was killed in the parking area of a Virginia Red Roof Inn, and the alleged shooter surrendered calmly after speaking with a crisis negotiator via FaceTime Sunday morning.

When deputies arrived at the motel at 386 Warrenton Road at 8:15 a.m., they discovered a man with a bullet wound to the chest, according to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers responded by providing first aid until medical personnel arrived. The man was taken to a hospital and died there. His identity has not been revealed because his family has not been notified.

Deputies said the suspect, 44-year-old George Pearson III of Stafford, fled in a silver Toyota Tacoma armed with a handgun and communicating with them via FaceTime.

A negotiator “attempted to arrange a peaceful surrender but the suspect refused to stop. The suspected indicated he would not be taken alive,” according to a news release.

Pearson, who was still on the FaceTime call with police at 11:30 a.m., came to a halt on an Interstate 95 offramp in Hanover County. He agreed to give up peacefully to Hanover County officers and Virginia State Police.

Pearson, who is being kept without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail, is charged with second-degree murder, felony use of a firearm, and felon in possession of a firearm.
