RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Two men are dead after a shooting on Richmond's south side.

Richmond police responded to the 100 block of Chuckatuck Avenue just before 3:30 P.M. Sunday.

There, they found Sean Mckay, 28, suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound. Mckay later died at the hospital.

Police say the other victim is also the suspected gunman.

Police say the gunshot wound was self-inflicted. The second victim also died at the hospital.

His name has not been released.

Police say the two men did know each other and say the shooting is a result of a neighborhood dispute.
