RICHMOND, Va. -- Police are investigating a fatal Northside shooting that occurred just after 7 p.m. Monday evening at Carolina and Meadow Bridge Streets.
Officers arrived at the scene to find a black male on the sidewalk suffering from gunshot wounds.
The male was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley extended thanks to a passerby who stopped to administer aid.
Police were at the scene Monday night with a forensics crew processing evidence and conducting interviews.

The area is residential with businesses nearby. The shooting occurred in daylight at a busy intersection. Police said they believe somebody must've seen something.
"A detail we may get no matter how small may help us solve this case," Lepley said. "They may get a reward."
There are a number of shooting that occurred this weekend. Today shooting marked the fifth in just over 24 hour period. The Northside shooting is the fourth homicide.
