RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond Police are looking for two men who shot another man as he was walking to his car early Wednesday morning. For several hours police worked to piece together what may have led to the violent attack.

The shooting happened in the 68-hundred block of Midlothian Turnpike--near Chippenham Parkway--just before 4:00 a.m. in the parking lot behind the Elite Nightclub.

Detectives told CBS 6 the man was trying to get into his car when the pair opened fire. The victim was taken to nearby Chippenham Hospital, after suffering non-life threatening injuries.

Right now the gunmen remain on the run, as police are still looking for the suspects.
