At approximately 11:15 p.m. Friday night, RPD officers were approached by a victim at Allen Avenue and Broad Street who stated someone had fired shots into their vehicle near the Circle following an altercation.

Around the same time, officers received several calls for random gunfire near the Circle in the 1600 block of Monument Avenue. When officers arrived, one of the callers stated the glass door at their residence was shattered by reported gunfire.

“Gunfire and violent behavior is not peaceful, nonviolent protest; it is criminal, unacceptable, and will not be tolerated in our city,” said Chief Gerald M. Smith. “The City of Richmond will take all necessary steps to protect residents and visitors and preserve peace and public safety in our communities.”

Officers canvassed the area near the Circle recovering a rifle and magazines.

Detectives are currently investigating to determine if the incidents are related.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.

Get Out and Enjoy the Outdoor Evening Events at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

A great chance to get outside and enjoy music, friends, food and of course a beautiful garden.

Getting out of the house safely is a challenge right now. One of the safest options is being outdoors. Luckily Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden has a host of options to help relieve that Covid-19 Cabin Fever.

Past favorites, Flowers After 5 and Fidos After 5 are back and will run through the end of September. New on the scene is Fridays Alfresco, a night out for friends or a date, with food provided by the Tea House. Enjoy patio dining, or folks can borrow a blanket and eat a picnic with food/wine purchased onsite.

Full Details on the events below.

Flowers After 5 
Stroll through the gardens; enjoy live music, wine, beer, dining and shopping.

Tickets for Flowers After 5 will be limited and timed tickets will be required for all guests, including members.  Tickets will be available online ONLY (no walk-ups). The event is rain or shine; no refunds. Cost is $14 adults; $11 senior citizens (65+); $8 children age 3-12; free for children under 3 and members. Included is the brand-new, nationally traveling exhibit M&T Bank: Wind, Waves and Light, featuring large-scale, stainless steel kinetic sculptures that move and change with the wind.

With more than 50 acres, guests can socially distance while exploring the gardens. Instead of one band at one location, the performers are splitting into soloists or duos in two locations, allowing for social distancing and providing background music for evening strolls and dining. The second and fourth Thursday nights are also Fido’s Nights when the Garden partners with the Richmond SPCA and leashed dogs are allowed.

Guests are invited to bring their own blankets and chairs. Food is not allowed to be brought into the Garden, but there is an option to purchase food online to eat outside in the Garden. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, snacks, desserts, drinks, and kids’ meals, as well as “Family Bistro Boxes” with choices of chicken tacos, salmon and pork BBQ, all available via online ordering. Beer, wine and hard seltzers will also be available for purchase in several spots throughout the Garden.

Check our website for the full band line-up!
