RICHMOND, Va. – Richmond police are investigating after bullets hit homes and parked cars not far from Clark Springs Elementary School Thursday evening.

Police said they got a call for random gunfire around 7:15 p.m. in the 1400 block of Lakeview Avenue and about a half a mile away on Dance Street.

CBS 6 reporter Jon Burkett met a woman who says her Lakeview Home was hit twice by bullets just before she sat down for dinner.

One of the bullets shattered her china cabinet.

    Neighborhood is undoubtedly full of gentle giants. I’d blame this on Richmond’s white city council members and the police. It’s certainly not the fault of those that infest the area.
