RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - One man is dead and Richmond Police are looking for two suspects after a fatal shooting in Richmond's East End on Newton Road.

Richmond Police identified the shooting victim as 37-year-old Gregory R. Carter, of the 200 block of North Fourth Street.

"Detectives are working on a theory that Carter was shot to death by one of two men he met earlier in the evening in downtown Richmond," Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley wrote in an email to CBS 6. "The men have been described as black males, in their thirties, one taller than the other, both with beards. They were seen with Carter, also a black male, earlier that night."

According to the Richmond Police Department, a witnesses told officers about the shooting near Williamsburg Rd., by the Henrico County line, around 3:00 a.m.

They say that the car was found in a nearby wooded area.
