Richmond Police identified the victim killed in a shooting near VCU Thursday night and announced an arrest in the case Friday.
18-year-old Marquis J. Richardson of Chester was killed after an argument with Quintin Washington, 28, near Broad and Belvidere streets, according to Richmond Police.
Washington is now charged with voluntary manslaughter and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
The pair got in an argument around 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the Rite Aid, police said. Richardson was found with gunshot wounds inside a car and died at the scene.
VCU issued an alert to the campus about the shooting, letting them know about the incident and assuring them there was no danger. Authorities want to be clear this shooting did not involve the college campus or VCU students and they say this is not a random act of violence.
Witnesses and VCU students inside the store said they saw a woman and child covered in blood rush into the store in a panic, with the child yelling, "My dad, my dad."
Police are still in the early stages of the investigation and ask anyone with any information about this crime to call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
