Richmond police are seeking the public’s help in trying to solve a broad-daylight shooting last month near Nevin Park in Richmond.

The shooting, which did not injure anyone, occurred in the 400 block of 5th Street June 27 at 4:45 p.m., while several small children were playing outside in their front yards, police said.
