RPD tracks down suspects in April violence | News
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- After a violent April, Richmond Police announced multiple indictments and arrests which the department says will clear nearly all of the homicides and shootings in the city last month.
Three suspects were arrested and indicted on 53 total charges in connection with a murder and two robbery-related shootings.
Shayleisha Shenelle Winston, Corey James Walters, and Stephen Emanuel Mangrum were rounded up by Richmond Police with the help of several other law enforcement agencies. They're all accused in the murder of Khalfaanii Hasaan Sultaan in the 1700 block of Chicago Ave. on April 9, as well as the shooting and robbery of a man in the 1800 block of North 22nd Street on April 6.
Walters and Mangrum also are charged with shooting and robbing a man and woman in the 700 block of Porter St. on April 16.
"Every time a life is lost, it's a tragedy. But I think these indictments show that when you commit crimes in the Richmond area, we will find and arrest you," said Deputy Chief John Buturla. "But we could not have done this without the tremendous support and tips we received from the community, as well as our law enforcement partners."
Police are still asking for the public's help on the cases and want tips called in anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
