RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A woman died after a shooting Friday night in Richmond's Southside.

Police were called to a domestic disturbance on Berrywood Road.  When officers arrived they found 42-year-old Robin Mitchell shot to death.

Investigators questioned a male friend of Mitchell's who was there at the time of the shooting.

Mitchell had been employed with Richmond Public Schools from 2005 until the present. She served as both a bus driver and a cafeteria monitor at J. L. Francis Elementary.   

Felicia Cosby, spokesperson for Richmond Public Schools, had this to say of Mitchell:

"We are truly grieved at the loss of Ms. Mitchell. She was an outstanding employee who went above and beyond to promote and ensure the welfare of the students, families and co-workers she touched. She will be missed."

The case is considered a death investigation. It has not been classified a homicide.

Police are waiting for the medical examiner to determine a cause of death before deciding what they are dealing with and whether or not any charges should be placed.
