RICHMOND, Va. -- Police are investigating a shooting that left multiple people injured near Walmart on Sheila Lane in the Forest Hill section of Richmond on Friday night. All three shooting victims were taken to the hospital with what police described as non-life threatening injuries.

"At approximately 10:09 p.m., Richmond Police began receiving calls for random gunfire," Richmond Police Captain Jason Hudson said. "The call was then quickly upgraded to reports of multiple persons shot."

Crime Insider sources initially told Jon Burkett, and Richmond Police later confirmed, the shooting victims were shot at an apartment complex on Drumheller Drive and fled through the woods to Walmart looking for help.

"There is no evidence that the shooting occurred on/at Walmart property," Hudson continued. "A crime scene was located in the apartment complex on Drumheller Drive."

Police described the shooting victims as one adult (exact age not provided) and two teenagers under the age of 18.

Police interviewed the victims at the hospital, but have not yet shared information about a motive or shooting suspect.
