PETERSBURG, Va. (WTVR) – Police are investigating a third shooting in less than a week in Petersburg Wednesday afternoon.

A source told CBS 6 News’ Jon Burkett that the shooting happened around 3 p.m. on Buckner Street.

Crime scene tape stretched across the 2100 block of Walton Street as detectives searched a house. That’s just three streets over from the shooting on Buckner.

Jon Burkett is working to find out how the Walton Street scene is connected to the shooting on Buckner.
