RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia’s capital city sought on Saturday information about a homicide in which a 16-year-old youth died.

Richmond police said officers were called about a shooting reported on the city’s east side and found the male teenager inside a convenience store. He had collapsed there after being shot Thursday evening outside the retailer, police said in a news release.

The teenager, whose name was not released at his family’s request, was pronounced dead about 20 minutes after the initial call. No charges have been filed.

A male adult inside the store at the time was also shot. He was taken to a hospital with a non-life threatening injury, according to the Richmond Police Department.
