Two Richmond Police officers and a suspect are injured after a shooting on the city’s south side early Tuesday morning.
At around 1:25 a.m., RPD officers were called to investigate a report of an armed person in the 800 block of Semmes Avenue.
When they arrived, gunfire erupted.
The officers and suspect were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Sources said one officer was hit in the torso and has serious injuries, the other having non-life-threatening injuries. Sources said both are stable.
Two additional suspects were detained for questioning.
The Department’s Force Investigation Team will investigate the shooting and prepare a report for review by the RPD Chief of Police and submission to the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
Windows Busted Out at Crossroads and Coqui Cyclery
The windows were broken on Friday night, no other damage was reported. The blow is especially harsh for Crossroads as they’ve been closed for months due to Covid-19 so zero income. The Crossroads GoFundMe is still active if you care to donate. I haven’t seen any donation effort for Coqui Cyclery but if one pops up I’ll add it here. Coqui was open for business the next day and is still there for all your biking needs.
Hill Standard’s Website is Live
More details on the latest development on Forest Hill Avenue.
Nearly weekly on local social media the question comes up, What are they building next to the school (4910-20 Forest Hill Avenue)? You will no longer have to explain that it’s a mixed-use pair of buildings that will include apartments, a brewery, coffee shop, and an ice cream shop. Now you can simply give them this link (https://www.hillstandardrva.com/hill-standard-richmond-va/) and send them on their merry way.
If you’re thinking of moving in, one-bedroom apartments start at $1,225 while a two-bedroom will start at $1,943.
If you’re thinking of getting a beer, the Veil satellite brewery is planning on being open in September.
