One man was killed and another injured in a shooting in Richmond Sunday evening, a police lieutenant said.
Police responded around 5:45 p.m. to several reports of shots
fired near the intersection of Virginia Avenue and South 12th Street, where
they found a man on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound to the torso,
according to Lt. Andre Hill.
Paramedics arrived on the scene and attempted life-saving
measures, but the man died at the scene.
Hill said a second man arrived at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center
in Richmond around the same time suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.
He was listed in stable condition as of 9 p.m.
Police have not released the identity of the man killed and do not
have a suspect description.
Investigators believe a lone shooter opened fire after an argument
with the two victims escalated, Hill said.
He said the shooting appears to have stemmed from a "neighborhood
dispute" and that the victims and shooter likely knew one another prior to
The murder is believed to be Richmond's sixth homicide this year
and comes a day after a 31-year-old San Francisco man was shot and killed on
Interstate Highway 580 in Richmond, according to Hill.
