RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - An arrest has been made in the Friday morning shooting and robbery of a construction worker in Richmond.

20-year-old Marcellus Walters was arrested and charged for the crime that took place on Southlawn Boulevard in Hillside Court.

The suspect approached the contract worker, who was helping with painting and maintenance, and demanded his necklace.

A witness tells us that even though the victim handed the necklace over and  begged not to be shot, the gunman shot him anyway.

The victim is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
