HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - The hunt is on for the gunman who opened fire on two young men in broad daylight. It happened just before three Tuesday afternoon, at the Glenwood Farms Apartments on Harvie Road in Henrico's east-end.

Both victims were rushed to VCU Medical Center. One victim, shot in the chest, remains there, in critical condition at this hour. The second survived a gunshot wound to the leg.

So far, no arrests, but in that Henrico neighborhood there is a lot of anger. We spoke to one outraged woman, who says she's had a few close calls of her own.

By nightfall Henrico police still had a presence at Glenwood Farms Apartments. Just hours earlier two young men had been gunned down. Taherah Spinner is understandably, angry about it.

"Where is these guns coming from," said Spinner.

She says stray bullets have pierced her walls not once but twice in the last year. So when she heard this latest round of gunfire at the apartments across the street, her gut reaction was to run for cover.

"Yeah, I heard four shots," she said.

Two young men were hit, including Herman Graham's 20 year old son. He rushed to the scene to talk to police.

"I just got a call that my son my two sons had been involved in some kind of altercation. One of them had been shot. I found that out after I got here and said he was shot in the leg," Graham said.

The other victim was shot in the chest. Spinner says she's at her wits end, but won't let crime chase her out of the neighborhood.

"I've been tired, this is ridiculous. I don't understand why this is occurring and it has to stop," Spinner said.

Police haven't released a suspect description. Anyone with any information about the double shooting, call Henrico police or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
