Henrico County Police said an 18-year-old woman was found shot dead in an apartment, in one of two shootings in the area within 24 hours.
The Richmond Times Dispatch reports that Britney J Beaton from Hanover County was found inside the apartment on Beth Road at around 7:42 am. Less than half a mile northwest of Sprinkle Lane, Henrico Police officers responded to a separate shooting around 8:15 a.m.
Police said the two shootings were unrelated, and while they were close to each other, they took place in different housing complexes.
On the other hand, police said they have reinforced their presence in the West End where the apartment complexes are located.
