HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A woman was killed in a Tuesday morning shooting at an apartment complex on Beth Road, near Staples Mill Road, in Henrico County.

Police have identified the victim as 18-year-old Brittney J. Peyton of Hanover County.

There has been no indication yet of an arrest.

Tuesday morning's fatal shooting took place about a third of a mile away from a Monday morning shooting on Sprenkle Lane.

Crime Insider sources told Jon Burkett that the shooting on Monday was a domestic dispute between two females.

Police said the two incidents are not related.

"It’s making you scared to go outside because this normally is a quiet area. Nobody bothers nothing," neighbor Diane Trainham said. "Yesterday was shocking and today is shocking, it’s too much."

Anyone with information about Tuesday's shooting was asked to call Detective Noah at 804-501-5581.
