Po­lice iden­tify vic­tim, 28, killed in shoot­ing at Whit­comb Court

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - LOCAL PERSPECTIVES -

The Rich­mond Po­lice Depart­ment has iden­ti­fied the vic­tim of Fri­day evening’s homi­cide in Whit­comb Court as Ti­mothy Gar­nett, 28, of the 500 block of Mango Court.

At about 7:30 p.m., Rich­mond po­lice of­fi­cers re­sponded to calls of gun­shots in the 2400 block of Carmine Street and found Gar­nett ly­ing un­re­spon­sive on the side­walk near the in­ter­sec­tion of Carmine and Bethel streets. A sec­ond gun­shot vic­tim was found with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries and trans­ported to a hospi­tal, po­lice said.

“Although it was at night, there were lots of peo­ple in the area at that time who may have seen or heard some­thing,” said Ma­jor Crimes Capt. James Laino. “With the right tip, we could solve this crime quickly, but we need them to come for­ward and tell us what they know.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Ma­jor Crimes De­tec­tive P. Mansfield at (804) 646-6996 or con­tact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or at www.7801000.com. The P3 Tips app for smart­phones may also be used.
