Police said the witness accounts they have received regarding the incident are too inconsistent to provide a suspect description.

The shooting marks second homicide in Richmond in just 24 hours.

“We have good leads on both cases, good evidence and good witnesses,” Drew added.

“She came in the hallway and she was like what happened and I said, ‘It’s a crime scene,’” Whitmore said.

Whitmore is stunned the incident happened in broad daylight.

“I could have been out here, or my sister… I mean bullets don`t have names on them so anybody could have been affected,” Whitmore said. “I would hope that people would get a heart and think about little kids and think about families they are affecting when they decide to make these decisions.”

Police are still investigating and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
