RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond man has died after being shot multiple times in Mosby Court Monday night.

“At approximately 10:45 p.m., officers responding to a call of random gunfire were driving in the area of Accommodation and Coalter streets when they were flagged down by a person driving a vehicle who was attempting to transport the male victim of the shooting to the hospital,” said Richmond Police spokesperson James Mercante.

When officers arrived to Redd Street, they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
