CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - Two people are dead and another hurt after what police are calling a “domestic-related” shooting in Chesterfield County.

Police responded to the 7400 block of Barksbridge Road around 2 early Tuesday morning for the shooting. When they arrived, one person was found in the front yard with multiple gunshot wounds. Two other people were found inside.

The person found in the front yard was taken to a hospital with injuries and is expected to survive. The other two were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police identified the people killed as Makiba A. Hall, 47, and Christopher B. Evans, 51.

Officers said Hall, Evans and the third victim, who is Hall’s son, all lived at the home. Hall and Evans were in a long-term relationship.

“At this point, the investigation indicates Evans shot Hall and the third victim before shooting himself,” police said.

Officers were on scene for several hours investigating this shooting.

Natanael Garcia has lived along Barkbridge road for more than 15 years with his parents.

“This neighborhood has always been really quiet,” Garcia said. “There’s never been a lot of like anything really. It’s just occasional kids running around being kids, but mostly it’s been really quiet.”

Garcia didn’t hear or see anything until his mom told him what was going on.

“My mom told me that there was sirens and lights outside,” he said.

Garcia and Jasmine Thompson, who also live along Barkbridge Road, said they didn’t know the people who lived inside this home.

“I drive down that street to take my kids to school, but we’ve never seen anyone outside their house,” Thompson said.

Thompson moved into the neighborhood more than a year ago and was shocked to hear a shooting happened several doors down from where she lives.

“We have four kids, so when we moved in everything was quiet,” she said. “With COVID, we haven’t really been able to meet all the neighbors.”

As a mother to four young children, Thompson said this situation is keeping her more alert.

“I can’t wrap my head around it. It’s scary,” she said. “You don’t think it’s gonna happen anywhere near you, and then it does, and then what do you do? You’ve got to keep your kids safe.”

No additional suspects are being sought at this time. Anyone with further information on what happened should call Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
