A 16-year-old restaurant employee was struck by a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting in Richmond Thursday night, police said.

Just before 6:30 p.m., officers responded to the 4800 block of Valley View Road in Richmond’s May Valley neighborhood on a report of a drive-by shooting, Richmond police Capt. Al Walle reported.

“The intended targets appeared to be a group of men who were standing in front of a nearby barbershop,” Walle said, adding, “The victim was transported to a trauma center in serious but stable condition.”

Further information wasn’t immediately available.
