Police ID victim in Church Hill homicide

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police have identified the homicide victim found inside of a house in Church Hill.

Thomas Jones, 54, of the 1300 block of North 29th Street, was found dead at the scene with a gunshot wound. The Medical Examiner has not released an official cause of death at this time.

The police chief said something was unusual about the house because the door was locked before the man was found by a family member. There are no signs of forced entry.

"Right now, we can't even say if we need the community's assistance because right now, we just don't know what we have," said Chief Alfred Durham. "Again, a family member comes to the location, and identified a person as dead."
