KEELING, Va. (AP) - A man accused of shooting and wounding a Pittsylvania County sheriff’s deputy has pleaded no contest in the case.

The Danville Register & Bee (https://bit.ly/2deLrEH ) reports that 38-year-old Brian Bradfield Cundiff entered the plea Thursday morning after being charged with attempted capital murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and malicious bodily injury of a police officer.

Pittsylvania County Sheriff Mike Taylor says that Cundiff shot and wounded a deputy who responded to a domestic-related call in April. The shot grazed the deputy’s head.

Cundiff then barricaded himself in the home for hours but surrendered after SWAT teams entered the home.

Cundiff is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 14 in Pittsylvania County Circuit Court.
