1 suspect arrested, 4 more sought in connection to Broad St. shooting

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Chesterfield County man has been arrested and police are seeking four other men in connection with a shooting that occurred on West Broad Street in Richmond earlier this month.

According to police, D-Vonn A. Reaux, 20, of the 3700 block of Lucky Lee Cres North in Chesterfield County, turned himself in on Tuesday at Richmond Police Headquarters. He is charged with attempted murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

At approximately 2:42 a.m. on July 16, officers responded to a call of a person shot in the 1100 block of West Broad Street. They arrived to find an adult male lying in the street suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Virginia Commonwealth University Police provided vital assistance during the preliminary phase of investigation, according to a spokesperson with the Richmond Police Department, including responding to the crime scene, interviewing witnesses and helping RPD detectives to identify three of the suspects.

“Detectives have been working strong leads since the incident, and this arrest brings us one step closer to clearing this case,” said Lt. Jason Hudson with the Major Crimes Unit. “However, there are still two suspects at large who are wanted in connection with this shooting, and two more whom we need the public’s help to identify.”

Two Chesterfield County men, 20-year-old Kiante M. Smith and 22-year-old Montrell Graves are each wanted on charges of attempted murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Both men should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Smith is described as a black male, 5’8” tall, weighing 160 pounds with a medium complexion, black hair and brown eyes. Graves is described as a black male, 6’2” tall, weighing 225 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
