Man shot at Chase City residence, in serious condition / December 13, 2017

A man remains in critical condition at VCU Medical Center in Richmond after he was shot Saturday night outside a residence in Chase City.

Cpl. Scott Edmonds with the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office was called to the 100 block of Jackson Road after a witness reported a shooting to the 911 Center.

When Edmonds arrived at the Green Acres trailer court, around 11 p.m., the victim was being attended to by a member of the Chase City Police Department, according to Sheriff’s Office reports.

Sheriff Bobby Hawkins stated the victim was shot in the face and the bullet lodged in his brain.

Authorities are not releasing the name of the victim at this time, but they say he was transported to VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital in South Hill and later transferred to the VCU hospital in Richmond for treatment of life-threatening injuries. As of Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office reported that the victim’s condition was upgraded to serious.

The investigation into the shooting continues. Although police are not ready to offer a motive for the shooting, Sheriff Hawkins said he believes an arrest is imminent.
