CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two people were sent to the hospital Thursday after a shooting in what residents called a ‘quiet’ Chesterfield neighborhood.
Officers responded to a residence in the 3500 block of Colonnade Road at around 11:42 a.m. for reports of an assault with a deadly weapon. Authorities found evidence of a shooting in the area.
Police said they learned two male victims had been transported to a hospital with gunshot wounds. The extent of the victims’ injuries is unknown at this time.
Residents who 8News spoke with said they were alarmed.
“Really odd actually because it’s a dead-end,” Ryan Johannsmeier, a nearby resident, explained. “Really no traffic or anything like that. It’s a quiet neighborhood really. All we hear is VSU and that’s it.”
“It’s nerve-racking. I have two small kids and my sister babysits them here while I’m at work,” a concerned mother who lives in the area said. “She alerted me this morning there were seven cop cars and they were continuously coming. I didn’t know if there was somebody on the loose. My sister said they were looking around house, they had K9s out so obviously I’m nervous at this point.”
Those with information about the shooting have been asked to call police or Crime Solvers.
