HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Police are investigating a homicide after man was found shot to death in eastern Henrico County.

It happened Friday night in the 1100 of Old Williamsburg Road in Sandston not far from Richmond International Airport.

That is where police sources told WTVR officers discovered a man shot to death in a car.

Those sources said officers are still searching for someone connected to the crime.

As a result, they are asking residents to stay indoors.

In fact, a man told WTVR CBS 6 via Facebook that his wife was turned away by officers as she was trying to drive home.

"My wife was sent away she was trying to get home," C. Roberts wrote. "I'll be heading in that direction soon to try and get home myself... Officers told her to come back in a hour and try then."
