"She was transported to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries," a Henrico Police spokesperson said. "This incident is being investigated as a homicide, and detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding it."

"I was watching TV and one gunshot went off," recalled one neighbor. "I paused the television and then a few seconds later a second one went off."

The witness said she called 911 and heard her neighbor yelling next door.
