RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police are looking for a man wanted in connection with a double shooting in south Richmond.
The two men were shot near a motel on Jeff Davis Highway. Detectives and SWAT team units surrounded a nearby motel just a block away from the shooting. Police say the victims called police from a BP down the street from the motel.
"It's bad," said one neighbor. "Crime, crime, crime. They need to get these guns off the street."
Officers say someone shot the men while trying to rob them around 9:45 Wednesday night. It was just an hour before the gas station closed for the night. The shooting is an unsettling thought for one neighbor who did not want to go on camera.
"Because it's bad. We can't even walk the sidewalk safely to get to work in the morning and to get home at night time."
