Police believe shooting incidents on Clay Street, Mechanicsville Turnpike are related

From the RPD:

The Richmond Police Department is seeking information about two shooting incidents tonight in the east end of the city that officers believe are related.

The first incident took place at approximately 6:50 p.m. at the intersection of 30th and Clay Streets. Witnesses say the occupants of two vehicles engaged in an exchange of gunfire in which more than two dozen shots were fired.

A few minutes later, in the 1400 block of Mechanicsville Turnpike there was another exchange of gunfire under similar circumstances. RPD officers stopped one of the vehicles, a Chevrolet Sebring, near the intersection of Redd Street and Mechanicsville Turnpike. Two of the three occupants of the vehicle have been detained on charges unrelated to the shootings. The vehicle, which was struck several times by gunfire, is being processed.

The second vehicle involved in these incidents may have been a silver VW Jetta.

The Department is asking anyone who may have witnessed these shootings or has information to share anonymously to call Crime Stoppers at 804 780-1000 or on-line at or with the P3 smartphone app.
