RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Charges were dropped against a man who was accused of shooting into a vehicle, injuring one person back in June.

On June 19, officers were called to the 300 block of Cedar Fork Road just after 10 a.m. for a firearms violation call. Soon after, police were told a gunshot victim was driving to a hospital for treatment.

Richmond police say the victim showed up near VCU Medical Center and approached an ambulance for help.

The adult man was transported to the hospital with critical injuries.

During that time, Henrico officers discovered the actual shooting scene in the area of Bending Branch Drive and Meadows Run Drive.

A 27-year-old Henrico man was later developed as a suspect in the shooting and arrested. He initially faced charges of malicious wounding, shooting into an occupied vehicle and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony. However, those charges were later dismissed by the prosecution.

Anyone with information on this shooting should call police or Crime Stopper at (804) 780-1000 or submit tips on the P3Tips app.
