Crime

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — One man is dead and another is injured following a fight over the weekend at a club on Jefferson Davis Highway, Chesterfield Police said.

Police are calling this a suspicious death investigation. According to police, on Saturday, July 11 two men arrived with injuries they had sustained the night before during a fight at a club on the 7200 block of Jefferson Davis Highway.

One victim sustained life-threatening injuries, while the other had non-life threatening injuries.

“The second victim reported that he and the other victim were assaulted by an unknown suspect or suspects,” Chesterfield Police said.

Garland Southers, who owns an auto shop just a building away from the scene, said he was startled when he heard the news.

“I normally don’t hear nothing like this, and I’ve got good tenants in this shopping center and I really can’t complain about any of them. I’ve never experienced nothing like this,” Southers said.

Based on information from the second victim, police created a sketch of a man who may be involved in the incident outside the nightclub.

The identity of the victim who died is being withheld until the family is notified.

At this point in the investigation, Chesterfield Police told 8News they don’t believe a weapon was used during the fight.

Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of this unknown man is asked to call the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-125
