Chesterfield County

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — Police are still investigating a Chesterfield homicide that left an 18-year-old dead.

Police told 8News they responded to the 6200 block of Gatesgreen Drive before 4:15 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26. When they arrived they found a silver-colored Hyundai Elantra that had driven into the front porch of a home.

The driver, Bryson Andrew Mitchell of Chesterfield, was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police said at around 7 a.m. that Mitchell had died.

Mitchell lived in the 6300 block of Gatesgreen Drive.

8News spoke with the family that lives inside the home. They said no one inside the home was hurt, but they were shaken up.

Other neighbors said they were shocked this happened in a neighborhood with little crime.

“It is a little different,” Revarlo Mitchell explained. “There’s not generally much crime here. For the past year, you may hear a gunshot or a series of gunshots that come from back this side of the neighborhood which is coincidentally where the car come out this morning.”

Police haven’t released any suspect information.

Anyone with information about this homicide should contact Chesterfield County Police at 804-748-1251 or Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
