CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Police are investigating a fatal shooting on Galena Avenue, off Jeff Davis Highway, in Chesterfield County. The shooting was reported at about 5:29 a.m., according to police.

A neighbor reported hearing a loud noise, like a gunshot. That neighbor then said he heard someone outside yelling for help.

"Upon arrival police located Jon-Eric Schwartz V, 30, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to an area hospital where he later died," a Chesterfield Police spokesperson said. "The incident is currently under investigation."

John Skinner, who lives near the shooting scene, said he was surprised by the large investigation.

"I've never seen anything like this this close by," said Skinner. "I certainly don't want to see it anymore. This is not acceptable by me or any of my neighbors."
