Four Richmond shootings in four hours; one person dead


Richmond Police are investigating multiple shootings Saturday night and early Sunday morning, one of which was fatal.

Detectives say a man was shot multiple times in the 1000 block of St. Paul Street at approximately 9:15 p.m. Saturday. He was taken to VCU Medical Center and later died.

RPD later identified the victim as 18-year-old Nyjai Johnson, and confirmed the arrest of 24-year-old Garland Davis by U.S. Marshals. Davis is charged with one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, however additional charges are pending.

Two other shootings happened on North Avenue. The first, at 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 3300 block. That victim, described only as a male, is expected to survive. Another shooting happened in the 4100 block of North Avenue at 12:40 a.m. Police said that victim’s injuries were also considered non-life threatening.

Police said another shooting occurred just after 1:30 a.m. in the 600 block of Stockton Street. The initial call was for two shooting victims, but responding officers only found one victim who’d been shot in the leg. Officers said that victim’s injuries were not considered serious.

Investigators said there isn't any indication at this time that any of the shootings are connected.
