Police: Man critically wounded in broad daylight shooting in Sandston

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) —  A man is fighting for his life after Henrico Police say he was shot on a residential street in broad daylight Tuesday afternoon. It happened just before 1 p.m. on Old Williamsburg Road near Scotch Pine Drive.

The victim, an adult male, is at VCU Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

“I’m sure at that moment in time, whoever did this probably thought what they were doing was right for them,” said Jared Belcher, who lives just a few hundred feet from the scene. “I don’t approve of it on my road. I don’t approve of it at all. I hope they catch them. I hope they throw the book at them.”


This is the second shooting on Old Williamsburg Road in the past nine months. Last April, someone murdered Shawn Johnson in his car. His suspected killer, Jarvis Williams, goes on trial later this year.
