The incidents capped a week of rampant gun violence in Richmond and North Richmond.

On Friday night, a 16-year-old boy was found shot dead in front of a home in the 300 block of Market Street in North Richmond. The same night, the driver of a crashed car at 6th and Pennsylvania Avenue died from gunshot wounds.

Earlier in the week, on Tuesday night, four teenagers suffered non-life-threatening injuries in two separate shootings in Richmond.

No arrests have been reported in any of the shootings, Abetkov said, nor have any of the victims been identified.
