RICHMOND, Va. -- Family members identified the man fatally shot Thursday morning in Richmond as 24-year-old Jerode Greene, of Henrico.

Greene was shot just after 8 a.m. along the 4200 block of Chamberlayne Avenue.

Police said Greene was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:46 a.m.

He was visiting family when he was shot, relatives told CBS 6 Crime Insider Jon Burkett. Those relatives said they had no idea why anyone would want to kill Greene.

"It is believed there were multiple witnesses in the area at the time, including those who were traveling to work or school," Det. Victoria Griffith-Matko said. "We urge anyone who has any information to come forward. Any tip can help us make an arrest and take these individuals off the street."
