Richmond police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the 100 block of 5th Street, between Chanslor and Bissell avenues, early Sunday.

At 1:16 a.m.., officers responded to the scene and found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He died at the scene. Police believe the victim had been attending a large house party on the same block before he was shot.

No suspects have been named. Any witnesses or anyone with information is encouraged to contact Richmond Police Homicide Detective Villalobos at 510-620-6541 or email jvillalobos@richmondpd.net.

The identity of the victim has not yet been released.

The fatal shooting was the latest in a spate of recent gun violence in Richmond. On Tuesday, Oct. 8, a shooting on Loyola Drive in Richmond claimed the life of Ayanius Saucer, 17, of San Pablo.

On Oct. 3, two people were fatally shot and another injured in the 3100 block of Esmond Avenue, an incident police believe to be gang-related. And on Sept. 27, after a football game at De Anza High endured about three fan fights, a shooting near the campus injured three teenagers. Three arrests were made in connection with that shooting.

Correction: this story has been adjusted to reflect that this incident occurred at 1:16 a.m., not 1:16 p.m.


    • The no-snitch culture in Richmond will keep the murders happening and the bereavements flowing. This ain’t nothing new. I feel for the victim’s people, they are the ones really stressing and suffering.

  1. Chansler & Bissell victim was a good friend of my sister. His family especially his mom is going through a rough time, calling his phone every 10 min to see if she could hear his voice again at least for the last time. Please have sympathy for the family. Before he got killed he uploaded his last snap, The beautiful treasure of his snap of him singing with friends. Having a blast! Showing that big smile is now friends and family’s treasure. Keep that in mind! Rest in Peace Flavio?

  2. It is not about snitching when people of your own community kill each other. It is about saying enough is enough. You are ruining our and your own community. That is what needs to be impressed upon the culture that continues to foster in Richmond. We want better. Develop more of Richmond and change this city.
