RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Commonwealth University went into a lockdown this afternoon after a shooting at 1000 W Grace st.
Richmond police say a 20 year-old man was shot in the hand on Saturday afternoon, which led campus administration to issue an emergency alert for students on campus.
The man was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police told 8News the incident is still under investigation.
At the scene, 8News reporter Tyler Thrasher found police had taped off a large area – and that many local residents were ignoring the shelter in place order and coming out to view the scene.
At 3:04 p.m., VCU sent out one final campus-wide alert saying the situation had been resolved.
