RICHMOND, Va. -- Two people were killed in two separate Richmond shootings on Monday.

Richmond Police officers swarmed the intersection of Saint Peter and Charity Streets in the Gilpin Court housing projects Monday evening.

Crime Insider sources say a man was sitting on a porch when gunfire erupted. One eyewitness said they heard more than half-a-dozen shots.

CI sources say he was shot in the head and later died at VCU Medical Center.

Shortly after, a drive by shooting took place two-and-a-half miles away and in Mosby Court, according to CI sources.

A woman inside a silver-colored sedan was hit while driving in her car. She was pronounced dead while being transported to the hospital.
