She had just started her 9th-grade year and was described as an honor roll student who loved her siblings.

So far, no arrests have been made.

The community will hold another vigil at 6 p.m. this evening at the spot Tynashia was shot - in hopes someone with information about her killer will speak up.

Businessman Accused of Laundering $470,000 Stolen from VCU

A businessman now faces charges connected to a cyber scheme that scammed VCU out of nearly half a million dollars.

A new indictment accuses Hakhyun Chun of helping set up a bank account in LA where that money was sent using his company name.

He’s accused of then distributing it to multiple people through wire transfers, writing checks, and making cash withdrawals.

42-year-old Olabanji Egbinola is charged with wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

They’re accused of posing as employees at companies that victims like VCU already used in order to pull off the scam.
