Shootout on the 100 block of Poe Street

The RTD is reporting a shootout on Poe Street:

Richmond police Capt. Paul Kiniry said the man was taken to VCU Medical Center after the 8:54 p.m. shooting to be treated for a gunshot wound to the back that was not believed to be life-threatening.

Kiniry said the man exchanged gunfire with a group of unknown males in the 100 block of Poe Street, and after he was struck, he drove about six blocks to a store on Brookland Park Boulevard near Hanes Avenue, where authorities were called.

This shooting makes the eighth in the Northside in 2012. You can see a map of all of the Northside’s violent crime in 2012 here (red pinpoints are shootings).
