A juvenile has been arrested in last Thursday’s shooting at 21st and Clay Streets. Police say they also have strong leads on a second suspect.
At 10:08 a.m., Dec. 15, police responded to a call for a shooting in the 2100 block of E. Clay Street. Upon arrival they discovered a black male with gunshot wounds to the hand and leg. The victim was transported to VCU Medical Center and treated for injuries that were not life threatening.
The victim says he and other workers were at a construction site when they saw two black males attempt to steal tools from their truck. The workers exchanged words with the two black males. The victim says it was at that point that one of the black males turned and shot at him.
Shortly after this incident two black males matching the description of the suspects were spotted and questioned. One of the two males admitted to being involved in the shooting. A gun, ammunition, and crack cocaine were confiscated. It was determined the second individual being questioned was not involved.
