Man, teenage girl shot in Hillside Court

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police are looking for the suspect who shot a teenage girl and a man Thursday night in Richmond's Southside.

Police say the man is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after he was shot several times last night. He is expected to be okay. At first his injuries were life-threatening. But, police say overnight his condition improved.

The teenager girl was shot once and she is expected to be okay.

It happened around 9 p.m. in the 1500 block of Harwood Street in Hillside Court.

Police tell us there were a lot of people walking about the area when the shooting happened.

Crime scene tape lines the streets and forensic teams were out collecting evidence for the better part of the night.

This year has been particularly violent in Hillside Court. Three people have been murdered — two just hours after midnight on New Years Day. Several others have been shot.
