Gunman Who Opened Fire After Graduation Ceremony Allegedly Targeted Victim
Police have reason to believe the suspect and one of the victims had a long-running dispute but the nature of it is still being investigated.
The gunman who opened fire after a high school graduation in Richmond, Virginia, allegedly targeted the 18-year-old who was killed.
19-year-old Amari Pollard sent hundreds of people fleeing as he began to fire into a crowd of people standing outside after the ceremony.
Graduate, Shawn Jackson and his step dad, Renzo Smith were both killed during the shooting.
Police have reason to believe Pollard and Jackson had a long-running dispute but the nature of it is still being investigated.
Five other people were wounded by gunshots including a 14-year-old and four men from ages 31 to 56.
An investigation is still on-going and Pollard remains in custody facing two counts of second-degree murder.
