RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond officers are investigating the report of shots fired near George Wythe High School.

On May 19, police were called around 2:13 p.m. to the school along Crutchfield Street for the report of random gunfire.

At the scene, officers took a report of shots fired from a vehicle nearby.

Police said several people were in the parking lot at the time, but no one was injured.

“Shots were fired on the northside of Crutchfield Street, off of school property at approximately 2:13 pm. Thankfully, no one was injured. It is uncertain at this time if, or how many, George Wythe students may be involved. Given that this is an active police investigation, we would refer all questions related to the incident to Richmond Police Department,” RPS said in a statement.
