From the RTD:

The other man, Deonte M. Bullock, 19, of the 2200 block of Carrington Street, was pronounced dead at the hospital Sunday afternoon.

The are at least the 54th and 55th murders in Richmond in 2017. By our count, there have been 55 murders, 9 killings marked as “Death Investigation”, and 2 people killed by the police. The 55 killings tie the count from 2007, though it looks like the 81 from 2006 is safe.

There have been 15 murders (and 2 killings marked “Death Investigations”) in the East End this year. These are the most killings in the East End since 2006 when there were 25.
