RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A teen is expected to recover after she was shot during a home robbery in Richmond.

Officers were called to Kimrod Road around 11 p.m. Thursday night.

Just before the robbery reportedly took place, a nearby doorbell camera captured a dark-colored vehicle backing up toward the home before turning off its lights at 10:45 p.m. - approximately 10 minutes before police arrived on the scene. Several minutes later, the same doorbell camera captured police arriving on the scene.

At this time, police have not confirmed if the vehicle in the video has any connection to the robbery.

They found a teen who was shot in the arm by a suspect, who also robbed several adult victims in the home before taking off.

The family said the victim is a 13-year-old girl and that she is recovering in the VCU hospital and expected to be OK.

According to police, the suspect(s) robbed three others before taking off. Police have not confirmed what was taken, but relatives of the family say that cash and electronics may have been taken from the home.

Police do not have a description of the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
