HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Henrico County Police Division is releasing new information about the potential charges that a juvenile is facing after he shot another juvenile near Springfield Road and Broad Street in the northwestern part of the county earlier this week.
Henrico Police said officers responded to the scene of the shooting on the corner of Meadowgreen Road and Meadowgreen Court around 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 13. Upon the officers’ arrival on scene, they learned about an isolated incident that took place in which one juvenile male had shot another juvenile male.
8News spoke with Glenda White, who was in the area during the time of the shooting. White described what she heard that night.
“We were just talking friendly and all of a sudden we heard 5 gunshots. I said, ‘that’s not fireworks,'” White told 8News. “And come to find out, there came two cops and, all of sudden, 10 cops, and then there were 15 cops putting up, like, something you see on TV — the yellow crime tapes.”
