Two men fatally shot in Richmond’s Iron Triangle on Saturday evening have been identified, a police spokeswoman said today. Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert activated at Fourth Street and Bissell Avenue around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.
Arriving officers found one of the men, identified as 23-year-old Richmond resident Dayton Dailey, injured from gunfire and he was pronounced dead at the scene, she said.
The other man, identified as 20-year-old Richmond resident Clarence Wallace, transported himself to Kaiser Permanente Richmond Medical Center where he was pronounced dead a short time later, Abetkov said.
Police believe Dailey and Wallace, who both suffered gunshot wounds to their upper torsos, were shot at the same location, Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill said.
The deaths are the city’s 11th and 12th homicides this year, according to Abetkov.
No arrests were made and no suspect information was immediately available.
