Man killed in Mosby

From wric8:

Police say the vehicle crashed near the intersection of Coalter and Redd Street. Investigators believe the shooting took place at a nearby location.

Responding officers found a green Chevy suburban crashed in the 1400 block of Coalter Street. The male driver was found suffering from a gunshot wound and was transported to VCU Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Also in the car was an adult female and two young children. […]

This is the 6th killing in the East End in 2015, three of which have come within blocks in Mosby Court Central.

Always Coalter Street… if Judge John Coalter only knew a street named after him would be so bloody…

When is this going to stop?

Man on trial for murder, abduction charges in Mosby Court shooting

Davie Young, 26, lived in Hopewell with his girlfriend of two years, Lashanta Lovett. On July 24, 2015, the couple, along with their 7-month-old son and Lovett’s daughter, drove into Richmond to visit family, according to Lovett’s testimony Wednesday. That evening, Young drove his Chevy Tahoe to a friend’s home on Gay Street in the Mosby Court public housing community and pulled over in front of a set of apartments.
It was hot out, Lovett told the jury, so all four windows were down, though the back two, where the children sat, could only roll down partially.

There was no answer at the friend’s front door, Lovett said, so Young went around back. A few minutes later, Lovett said, she looked back to see her boyfriend in a fistfight with two men. She said one of the men was James; the other was his brother, Coles.

Young got away and walked to his car with his hands raised in the air — an act of submission, according to Lovett. McCall alleged that Young’s raised hands had some significance to the Bloods gang.

“That’s when the man pulled out a gun,” Lovett said, referring to James.

To that, she said, Young told the men, “You got it. I meant no disrespect.”

Lovett said James then lowered the gun and fired a shot. Young crumpled in pain and hopped into the SUV, saying he’d been shot in the leg. As Young was trying to leave, Lovett said, James fired into the Tahoe, hitting Young again. She said she never saw Coles with a gun.
