Investigators Make Quick Arrest in Overnight Homicide

In less than 24 hours, Richmond Police investigators have arrested a woman in connection with the homicide last night on 4th Avenue.

Shanequa L. Chavis, 21, has been charged with the murder of her boyfriend, Eric D. Darby, 23, at the home they shared in the 2600 block of 4th Avenue. Investigators believe an argument was the motive.

Officers were initially called to the couple’s home at approximately 11:53 p.m. Wednesday when they received a call about a person shot. When they arrived, they found Darby shot to death on the ground in front of the residence.
