RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond Police have nabbed a man they say was involved in a shooting in broad daylight in the city's southside late last month, but they are still searching for a second person seen fleeing the shooting scene.
According to the department, 25-year-old Jimmie Hammond III of Richmond was arrested in neighboring Chesterfield on July 8 after being charged with attempted murder and using a firearm in commission of a felony following a June 30 shooting along Harwood Street.
Two off-duty officers heard gunfire along Harwood Street and quickly responsded to the scene. They relayed back to dispatchers that an adult female that was driving near the intersection of Harwood Street and Rosecrest Avenue had been shot and sideswiped a parked car before coming to a stop in the 1500 block of Harwood Streeet.
The woman was rushed to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Richmond Police detectives believe robbery was the motive in the shooting.
"Hammond's arrests puts us one step closer to clearing this case," said Sergeant Kim Mooney with the Major Crimes Unit. "However, we are asking for the community's help to locate a second suspect who was seen fleeing from the shooting scene in a gold-colored sedan."
That second suspect is described by police as a 5'6"-5'7" tall, black male with a chubby build, short haircut and a thin beard. At the time of the incident, he wore a gray shirt and jeans. He was seen fleeing the scene in a gold or champagne-colored Nissan Maxima.
If you have seen this individual or have any information that can aid investigators in this case, you are asked to call Richmond-Henrico Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
