HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A 22-year-old Sandston man was shot and killed outside a McDonald’s in eastern Henrico late Sunday night, according to Henrico Police. Police are now looking for the shooting suspects.
Police identified the shooting victim as Michael Raymond Bailey, Jr., 22, of Dakar Drive in Sandston.
A woman, who reached out via Facebook and claimed to be the victim’s mother, said her son worked at the McDonald’s and was outside taking a smoke break when he was shot.
“We are saddened about the incident that occurred last night outside our restaurant and our thoughts are with Michael’s family,” McDonald’s Owner/Operator Susan Robertson said in a statement. “Due to the current investigation, any further inquiries should be directed to the Henrico County Police Department.”
Bailey was shot about 11:15 p.m. Sunday outside the McDonald’s, police said. He was taken to VCU Medical Center where he later died.
“Two black males were seen running from the scene,” Henrico Police spokeswoman Lt. Linda Toney wrote in an email. “At this time, the motive has not been determined, and there is no suspect description for release.”
Police told employees at the McDonald’s along the 5100 block of Nine Mile Road to keep the doors locked as officers investigated.
McDonald’s employees were letting people they know into the restaurant, but have kept the doors locked to strangers.
Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Crime Stopper at 804-780-1000.
