RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond man was killed in a shooting on Interstate 64 Monday morning, according to Virginia State Police.

The shooting was reported at about 4:12 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I -64 on the Shockoe Valley Bridge.

"The driver of a Kia sedan reported that they were in the left lane when it was shot at by someone in a sedan in the center or right lane," an email from a Virginia State Police spokesperson read. "The driver of the Kia was able to exit the interstate and stop in the 500 block of E. Broad Street."

Timothy A.L.B. Richardson, 23, of Richmond, was a passenger in the Kia. Richardson was struck by the gunfire and died, according to police.

The Kia driver was injured and there was no one else in the car.

"Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Richmond Field Office responded to the scene and is investigating. Several casings have been recovered from the scene. Investigators are working to determine whether or not this was a targeted shooting and to identify any suspects," the email continued.

Virginia State Police shut down all westbound lanes of the Shockoe Valley Bridge Monday morning to investigate the shooting.

More than a dozen people were shot over the four-day holiday weekend in Central Virginia cities and counties, according to local police departments and Crime Insider sources.
