RICHMOND (WRIC)—The Richmond Police Department is investigating a homicide that occurred Sunday morning in the city's East End.
Officers were called to the 2700 block of the Richmond-Henrico Turnpike at 5:27 a.m., where they discovered a black female, 26-year-old Sheena Green, lying on the ground, suffering from a gunshot wound.
Green was later pronounced dead at VCU Medical Center.
ABC 8 News Reporter Tim Wronka spoke with Green's family on Dec. 29. Now, the only way Green's brother can see her is by looking at a picture.
"A big pill to swallow," Thomas Green said of his sister's death. "But we're going to pull through it."
Green also leaves two young children behind.
"They're just beautiful, my niece and my nephew," Thomas Green said. "Two beautiful kids—good kids. They ain't bad."
Police say their investigation led them to a Conway Streeet home, where SWAT teams were eventually called. According to family, the father of the victim's children lived in the home, but police won't confirm he's a suspect. It is unclear why SWAT teams were called, but the forensic unit followed once they left.
In the meantime, Green's family is left to pick up the pieces.
"I just want to see us all pull through this in a positive way," Thomas Green said. "That's all I want."
Though the standoff happened in Henrico County, Richmond Police detectives are working the case, since the body was discovered in the city.
