Man fighting for life after Chesterfield shooting; juvenile arrested

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A man is fighting for his life, and a young girl is in custody after an early morning shooting in Chesterfield.

David Daniels and his wife woke up in the middle of the night to a busy street filled with red lights and squad cars.

"Lined up all the way down. People couldn't get out if they wanted to get out," he said.

Chesterfield police responded to a call in the 3800 block of Beulah Road around 2 a.m. Sunday and found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

"Really surprised because that doesn't really happen around here. We've never really had a problem," said Daniels.

Daniels says police continued the investigation well into the morning as he left for church around 8 a.m.

"The cops were still here. A couple of them were still parked here," said Daniels.

None of the neighbors we spoke to claim to know the residents at the house in question.

But many of those residents, who chose not to be identified, said the tenants would have loud motorcycle races late at night.

"We don't know much about them. We know they have dogs," said Daniels.

Daniels also said police have questioned him about activity at the house before

"That was over a year ago though, if not longer."

Officers say the shooter is a young woman who ran away and was later arrested, not far from where the shooting happened.

Daniels says this doesn't faze him.

"I've got nothing to be worried about. Like I said, everyone's pretty friendly, and I've had no problems with anybody over there," said Daniels.

Police have not said much about the person in custody because she is a minor, but they did say the shooter is a charged with malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. She is being held at the Chesterfield County Juvenile Detention Center.

Anyone with any information about this shooting should call Chesterfield police at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
