Two men were shot in the 300 block of S. 16th Street Tuesday afternoon, police said.

The incident was reported at 4:24 p.m., and the injuries to the victims are believed to be non life threatening, Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill said.  The incident was “most likely the result of a drive by shooting,” Hill added.

The men were shot as they drove southbound on South 16th Street. A female who was also in the car was not injured. The lone shooter was driving northbound on South 16th Street, and as he approached the victims he positioned his vehicle so they could not pass, Hill said.

“At that point the suspect fired multiple shots at the victims,” he said.

The suspect described as a black man with “dreadlocked” hair who fled the scene and area northbound on South 16th in a two-door silver/grey Acura type vehicle, Hill said.
