RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — An 18-year-old woman was found shot to death in an apartment Tuesday, one of two shootings which occurred in the area in a 24-hour period, Henrico County police said.
Brittney J. Peyton of Hanover County was found inside the apartment on Beth Road at around 7:42 a.m., the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. Less than half a mile northwest on Sprenkle Lane, Henrico police officers responded to a separate shooting on around 8:15 a.m.
Police said the two shootings are unrelated, and while they were near each other, they occurred in different apartment complexes.
Meanwhile, police said they have increased their presence in the West End area where the apartment complexes were located.
