Woman critically injured in Maury Street shooting
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A woman is facing life-threatening injuries after being shot on Maury Street.
A series of pops, which turned out to be gunfire, quickly interrupted the pizza dinner Annaliese Bull and John Felsted were having on Saturday night in their home.
“My first thought was my dog, so I went out back and everyone [outside] was ducking and saying ‘She got hit, she got hit!'” Bull said.
Richmond police say a few minutes before 8 p.m. on Saturday night, they responded to the 2100 block of Maury Street.
The found a woman who had been shot at least once.
A worker at 301 Express Convenience Store tells NBC12 that the shooting happened in their parking lot.
Just a few minutes prior to the incident, Bull and Felsted says they were inside the store and that there was a large group of people outside the store who appeared to be shooting a music video. The couple adds that they believe they may have seen the victim inside the store with them.
“Once everybody came, the ambulances and stuff like that, I had looked over to see who had gotten shot, and I had recognized the girl. She was actually in the store when we were getting our pizza,” Bull said.
She adds that the convenience store was taped off for about an hour or two while police scoured the parking lot for clues.
The victim was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Bull and Feslted do say that despite the shooting, they haven’t had any other issues with this immediate area or 301 Express itself, but that “it definitely makes us be a lot more on guard and cautious of things like that happening. Just being aware.”
No word yet from police on suspects.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
