Teenager Targeted, Gunned Down in Richmond: Police

A Richmond teenager died late Friday after being shot multiple times, police said.

Dispatch received reports of a shooting at the Bella Vista at Hilltop at 3400 Richmond Parkway around 10:30 p.m., according to police. At the scene, officers found 17-year-old Chrisean Nealy suffering from several gunshot wounds.

He was taken to an area hospital, police said, but did not survive his injuries.

Investigators believe that Nealy, though not a resident of the apartment complex, was the intended target of the shooting.

Police did not provide information about a suspect or suspects, saying only that they are following up on leads and interviewing possible witnesses. There is no word on a motive either.

People with information about the shooting are asked to call (510) 620-6860.
