Victim identified in Westover Hills shooting

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Just months after surviving a separate shooting, a 25 year old is shot again in South Richmond and this time, it claimed his life. Richmond police identified Chancellor Price as the man murdered outside of the BP Gas Station on West over Hills Boulevard, early Monday morning. The gunman is still at-large. Police are hoping to identify the killer in surveillance video from nearby businesses - including surveillance from the scene of the crime.

Police tape and flashing lights painted the scene on West over Hills Boulevard just after 2:00 Monday morning.

"I rode by here this morning on my way to work at the VA hospital,” said Donald Morris on.

The BP customer saw the crime scene but had no clue what had just unfolded.

The man's body happened to be lying near a gas pump. Someone noticed him and immediately flagged an officer. It didn't take long for police to identify that man as 25 year old Chancellor Price. Police say he's the same man who survived a separate shooting also on the South side back in August. In that case, he drove himself to the hospital. Just a few months later, someone would shoot him again - this time, taking the young man's life.

Inside the store, a manager said detectives were on scene gathering clues - even analyzing a bullet hole outside of the store. It's not the first time crime has hit here. Back in 2011, police arrested a teenager for robbing and then shooting and killing 48 year old Blaine Tyler.

"Stop the violence. It's sad,” said customer Ka lie O'Neill.

Now people in the area are hoping for answers in the latest round of violence that claimed a young man's life just days before Christmas.

"Somebody seen something. Somebody know something. They need to tell it,” said Forest Allen.

"Unbelievable. This time of year, it's terrible. Couldn't be a worst time,” Morris on added.

The shooting shut down a portion of West over Hills and even caused the store to close temporarily. The manager says a female clerk who was working at the time was too shaken up to return to work.

Anyone with information about this incident can call Deut. Christopher Foul at 804 646-6996 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000
