RICHMOND (WRIC)—The Richmond Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the city's Southside early Friday morning.

Around 1:50 a.m. on Jan. 31, officers were called to the Manchester Lake Apartments on the 2100 block of Mandalay Drive—just east of the intersection of Chippenham Parkway and Hull Street Road—for a report of a disturbance. When they arrived on scene, they discovered an adult black female who had been shot inside a car.

The victim, who died at the scene, has not yet been identified.

RPD says this incident is not a random act and is following up on multiple leads.

Reporter Nadeen Yanes spoke with several residents who live in the apartment complex; they say the area is generally quiet and they were shocked to learn of the shooting.

Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Metro Richmond at 804-780-1000.
