CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — Two people are dead and one is in critical condition after shots rang out outside a sports bar in Chesterfield County overnight.
Chesterfield Police said the shooting happened at around 3:15 at the Your Place Sports Bar & Grill on Wadsworth Drive.
Police said when they arrived they found three victims in the parking lot.
One of the victims died at the scene and the other two victims were transported to an area hospital. One of those victims died at the hospital while the other victim is currently undergoing surgery for life-threatening injuries as a result of a gunshot wound, authorities said.
Shawn Swinson has been the owner of the bar for the last five years. He told 8News on Friday that what happened is not normal for the area.
The bar owner said he provided detectives with surveillance video of the incident that was too graphic to provide to the families of the victims. He called the incident “tragic” and said employees are shaken up.
Swinson said moving forward at closing time Chesterfield Police will be called in to help sweep the parking lot so that nothing like this ever happens again.
“To the family of the victims, you have my condolences. I couldn’t imagine going through something like that,” said Swinson.
No suspects are being sought at this time.
Anyone with additional information about this incident should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
