RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Three people were taken to the hospital after a shoot-out in Richmond. It happened around 6 p.m. Tuesday in the 1000 block of Hickory Street. All of the victims are expected to survive. 

Neighbors in the community don't know what led to the shooting that brought many people out of their homes to see what happened. When police arrived to the scene in Gilpin Court, they found a woman and man both shot. Those two victims were sent to VCU Medical Center. A third victim, a man arrived at a separate hospital for treatment. 

Investigators have determined the shooting was in reference to an altercation earlier in the week. It was not a random incident, and investigators have identified suspects and arrests are pending, according to police.

We talked to a woman near the scene, who said her 27-year-old niece was one of the victims. She said many people claimed to know what happen, but no one was ready to tell authorities. 

"Through word of mouth everybody was out here saying who supposedly done it and everything, but nobody's telling the cops who did it. My main concern is worrying about my niece," said one resident. 

"I mean stuff usually don't happen down here, stuff usually happen up the street. So I mean it was odd that something happened down here," said resident Diamond Barry. 

Police have not identified any of the victims. They talked to many people at the scene, but have not said if they have any suspects. Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
