CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Chesterfield Police are asking anyone who took photos at a weekend house party in Chesdin Landing where two men were killed, to share those pictures with investigators. Police are still investigating the weekend shooting deaths of Duval Turner Jr., 22, of Richmond, and Marc Starkes, 24, of Amelia County.

The men were killed at a Saturday night house party along the 15000 block of Chesdin Green Way in Chesterfield. The party was held in a home that was still under construction. Word of the party spread - in part - over social media.

Police said there were about 300 people at the party.

In addition to the party pictures, police have asked for help identifying a single party goer.

"Detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify an individual who attended the party and may have information about the shooting," a Chesterfield Police spokesperson said. "This man is described as a black male in his early 20s with a light complexion and skinny build. He was last seen wearing a red polo-style shirt, blue Levi’s pants and white tennis shoes. He also had several visible gold or silver teeth."

Police were called to the Chesterfield home at about 1:50 a.m. on Sunday, September 4, to investigate reports of a shooting.

"Upon arriving and checking the residence, where a large party was occurring, police found two adult male victims who were deceased," the police spokesperson said. "An additional victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries."

Angie Blackham and her family were sleeping when the shooting happened.

"I had my window open to my bedroom and all of a sudden I hear these popping sounds," she said.

Blackham said she did not realize they were gunshots.

"In this neighborhood that's the farthest thing from my mind—gunshots,” she said.

Blackham said the lake front golf course community is usually pretty quiet.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Chesterfield Police at 804-748-1268; after business hours at 804-748-1251, or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
