HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

The Henrico County Police Department says a 21-year-old woman was shot to death in a townhouse complex near Staples Mill Road and Glenside Drive on Saturday. 

Officers were called to the 4100 block of Townhouse Road at 10:24 p.m. for a shooting call and found Jessica Brianne Rogers, of Henrico, dead. 

The shooting is being investigated as a homicide, but police have not yet named any suspects.

The Staples Mills Townhomes community is now reacting to the news that someone who lives in their very community fell victim to gun violence and lost her young life as a result.

"Everybody's friendly," said Bob Greenhouse, who lives near the victim. "We tend, especially on our block, we take care of each other."

Bob Greenhouse has lived here for five years. He has never felt this kind of tragedy so close to home.

One neighbor says when police flooded the parking lot over the weekend, she saw the couple who Rogers lived with inside of the unit and they were visibly distraught. It took three days for the death investigation to be classified a homicide.

Those who live near her want to know who would take the 21-year-old's life and why - questions even investigators are working to answer, as this quiet community tries to wrap their finger around this horrific crime.

"The first thing my daughter was saying is, 'oh, I might want to move.' But I'm like crime is everywhere," said neighbor Thomas Harris.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
