The Richmond Police Department has made an arrest in connection to a double shooting that happened nearly three years ago in Church Hill North.
Josiah C. Wyche, 22, of the 2100 block of Accommodation Street was one of Virginia’s Most Wanted and featured on “Fugitive Friday.” Wyche was apprehended by First Precinct officers earlier this month. Wyche is charged with attempted murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
At approximately 1:52 a.m. on November 14, 2016, officers responded to 31st and T Streets for the report of two people shot. When police arrived, they located two adult males suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims were transported to a local hospital to be treated.
“I would like give kudos to our officers in the First Precinct Focus Mission Team for arresting Wyche,” saidMajor Crimes Lt. Faith Flippo. “No matter how much time passes, we are committed to searching for wanted offenders to bring closure for victims and their families.”
