Suspects Sought in Shooting of 7-Year-Old Boy, Adult Male

Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to identify the vehicle and suspects in last night’s shooting incident of a 7-year-old boy and an adult male.

At approximately 7:50 p.m., officers were called to the 1500 block of North 22nd Street in the Fairmount neighborhood for the report of a shooting. Officers arrived and found the two victims near a bus stop.

The victims were transported to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.

Detectives believe the suspects were driving a silver-colored, newer model Hyundai Sante Fe with New York license plates. When the vehicle passed the two victims, a passenger in the Hyundai fired from the moving car, striking both victims. A photo of the suspect vehicle was captured on a nearby surveillance camera and is attached.

The motive for this shooting is unclear.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the vehicle of the suspects to call Major Crimes Detective A. Darnell at (804) 646-3927 or contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000, online at or by texting Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the keyword “ITip” followed by your tip.
