RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)
Richmond Police are investigating a homicide Saturday morning in Hillside Court.
It happened around 5:35 a.m. in the 1800 block of Southlawn Avenue. Police found the victim, an adult male, lying in the grass between two apartment buildings.
Police say the man was shot in the chest. A mother of 5 is in shock after the shooting outside of her Hillside Court Apartment earlier today.
"They can't even go outside and play. I can't even trust them to go to the playground which is just across the street," the concerned mother said.
The mother of 5, who did not want her identity revealed, is breathing a sigh of relief tonight.
