A 25-year-old man was gunned down in Richmond after an apparent “neighborhood dispute” Sunday evening, a police lieutenant said today. The shooting was reported around 5:45 p.m. near Virginia Avenue and South 12th Street, according to Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill. Lester Williams III, of Richmond, was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the torso, Hill said.

Williams was pronounced dead at the scene, he said. Shortly after the shooting, a 21-year-old Richmond man arrived at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Richmond suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg, Hill said.

  • I happen to know that the murder that happened om may 4 2014 that took the life of a 25 year old father was not properly handled by the richmond police department and the medical responce team .I thought the duties of the police were to protect and serve and that the EMT POLICY was that the severity of the injury was first priority. well niot that day ,because the first call that the 911 dispatch received from that area that day was a call saying MY NEIGHBOR SHOT ME, AND STATED HIS NEIGHBOR WENT BACK THROUGH THE DOWN STAIRS APARTMENT that young man who died lived on Marina Way four blocks away from where they found him Lester Williams had chronic asthma and severe respitory problems his illness alone prevented him from running that far and . MR FRED TURNER WAS THAT young mans neighbor . ,within minutes later dispatch received several more calls of a fight and then gun shots in a different incident involving the TURNERS ..WAS IT A CRIME STAGED TO COVER UP ANOTHER AND THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND MEDICAL RESPONCE TEAM REFUSING THIS YOUNG TREATMENT LETTING THE REAL KILLERS TO GO FREE./…….
