RICHMOND, Va. -- Two people were shot inside a Richmond restaurant Thursday afternoon, Crime Insider sources told Jon Burkett.

"They were actually shot inside the building. I'm told one of them working here [and] one of them a customer," Crime Insider Jon Burkett reported on a Facebook LIVE. "The customer was shot in the leg. I'm told the bartender here, from multiple sources, was shot in the chest."

"Officers arrived and located two adult males down with apparent gunshot wounds," a Richmond Police spokesperson wrote. "One of the individual's injuries are considered life threatening."

Burkett's Crime Insider sources said it appeared to be a drive-by shooting.

Camera captures sound of gunfire

Kia Powell's doorbell camera captured the sound of the gunfire as she was leaving from her Manchester apartment.

She looked around for fear that her friend Brittany had been hit, Burkett said.

Luckily she was not, but when she got into her car she realized the pizza shop across the street had been involved in a shooting.
