RICHMOND, Va. -- A Henrico man and Mechanicsville woman were charged with attempted murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection to a Tuesday night shooting in Richmond.

A Richmond Police Officer first spotted a group of people fighting, at about 9:15 p.m., outside Good Tymes Restaurant and Wine Bar along the 2000 block of Chamberlayne Avenue.

"The officer learned a female had been struck by gunfire and had already left the scene in a personal vehicle," a Richmond Police spokesperson said. "During the incident another female was shot at, but not struck. Moments later a local hospital reported a female who had suffered an apparent gunshot wound had arrived from Chamberlayne Avenue via a personal vehicle."
