Louisiana Man Faces New Federal Gun Charges After Jan. 6 Attack

Following his arrest, a Louisiana man involved in the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol is now facing new federal gun charges. Edward Richmond Jr., 40, was originally charged with assaulting officers and engaging in physical violence in a restricted area. However, a grand jury in Louisiana has recently indicted him on additional, unrelated counts.

Indictment Details

Richmond is now accused of possessing a Windham Weaponry model WW-15 rifle with ammunition on January 22. The U.S. Department of Justice stated that he faces charges for possessing a firearm and ammunition as a previously convicted felon, as well as someone discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions.

Legal Proceedings

Currently detained in Washington, D.C., Richmond will undergo legal proceedings related to his involvement in the Capitol attack. Eventually, he will be transferred to Baton Rouge for arraignment on the new charges in the Middle District of Louisiana.
