Very little information has been realeased. At this point all we can say for sure that a male was found dead this morning around 5:30 near Semmes and Cowardin.
Police responded to the 400 block of Cowardin Avenue, near Semmes Avenue, for a report of a possible shooting. Officers found a male victim dead at the scene.
Richmond Police officials said it appeared the victim died of a gun shot wound, but the investigation is on-going. A cause of death has not been determined.
No suspect information has been released.
If the gun shot wound is confirmed, it would be Richmond’s first shooting and homicide on May after an extremely violent April. Last month, 31 people were shot and five were killed within city limits.
