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

discovered an adult black female who had been shot inside a car.
