RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Richmond Police arrested Darryl A. Greaves, 32, of Yorktown Avenue, in connection with a weekend homicide.

Greaves is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Police said additional indictments will be sought and added no suspects are being sought at this time.

The arrest comes after a man was killed in a South Richmond shooting. Officers were called to the 2500 block of Yorktown Avenue, off Jefferson Davis Highway, about 10:10 p.m. Sunday.

Police identified the shooting victim as Jeremy J. Meredith, 21, of Labrook Dr.

Upon arrival police found Meredith laying in the street with a gunshot wound.  He was transported to VCU Medical Center, where he later died.

Witnesses said they heard nine to 10 gunshots ring out in rapid succession. Following the shots, police surrounded a house on Yorktown Avenue just down the street from the shooting, according to neighbors.  Multiple witnesses saw officers handcuff and detain two men, who exited a home peacefully after some verbal coaxing by police.

Anyone with information about the shooting that could aid investigators is asked to call Metro-Richmond Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
