A series of recent shootings in Richmond has residents on edge and the police looking for a cause.
A 44-year-old Richmond man wounded in separate shootings Sunday died of his wounds, according to police, and two other men and a woman are recovering from wounds suffered in three separate incidents Sunday night.
Residents responding to news alerts issued by this site over the weekend speculated as to their cause but police have not, though investigators have said that – so far – no suspects have been identified and no motives established.
Police said Maekelwe Embaye, 44, of Richmond died at a local hospital after he was wounded in one of three bursts of gunfire Sunday evening.
His death was followed Tuesday night after a shooting on Chanslor Avenue when Miguel Ramirez, 56, was found mortally wounded shortly after 5 p.m.
