A Richmond woman told KTVU (Ch. 2) she believes that a shooting in front of her house on Chanslor Avenue on Tuesday was connected to the murder of local resident Keven Hall, 20, earlier this month.
The woman, identified by KTVU as Ann Cyrus, said her 18-year-old son was shot in the leg about 8 p.m. and was targeted “simply for knowing a person suspected” in the March 1 homicide.
The homicide and other gun violence has prompted heightened police patrols in the city.
“I don’t know if they think killing one of us will bring their loved one back or give them some sort of satisfaction, but it’s not. It’s not,” Cyrus told KTVU.
Cyrus checked into a motel because she feared the gunman will return.
“They’re bullying the community,” Cyrus said. “It’s come time for us to stand up.”
Richmond police say an arrest hasn’t yet been made in connection with Tuesday’s shooting, but have leads on the identity of the shooter.
