RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A death investigation is underway after a man was shot and killed in the city’s Northside overnight on Tuesday.
Richmond Police responded to the scene on 101 East Brookland Park Boulevard around midnight and found 38-year-old Jermaine Green suffering from a gunshot wound.
Police said the victim later died. The victim is listed as homeless within RPD’s database.
Police said they did not locate a weapon near the scene and are investigating the incident as a homicide.
A local business gave 8News security footage of the heavy police presence seen overnight.
In a different video that was seen by 8News, graphic security camera footage from the convenience store showed the moments leading up to the deadly shooting. A couple of cars pulled up into the parking lot. Soon after, the victim fell to the ground.
Several cars then pulled away from the scene almost immediately after in the video.
Eva Hite lives near the shooting scene and said incidents like this one are becoming more common in the area. “It’s disturbing,” she said.
“You just have to be super diligent in the city and be careful because that kind of stuff does happen and it’s not just right here,” Hite told 8News Tuesday. “It’s everywhere.”
