RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond Police identified the person killed late Sunday night in Richmond as 19-year-old Joseph Lewis, III, of East Gladstone Avenue.

Officers responded to the 3100 block of Meadowbridge Road for a reported shooting just before midnight Sunday night.

When officers arrived, they found Lewis. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Some neighbors, who wanted to remain anonymous, told CBS 6 crews they heard the gunfire.

Another neighbor by the name of Jessica Williams recently moved into a home down the street from where it happened.

"You never want to hear that happening in your neighborhood, in your street one street over," said Williams.

Williams said she hopes this incident brings more attention to the issues in the neighborhood, adding she hopes police officers 'step up their game, and continue doing what they're doing' to monitor the neighborhood.

No additional information has been released about a suspect in the fatal shooting.
