Investigation Continues into Shooting That Injured 101-Year-Old Woman

Richmond Police detectives are still investigating a weekend shooting that injured a 101-year-old woman.

At approximately 12 a.m. on Sunday, officers responded to a home in the 00 block of East 20th Street for a report of a person shot. When they arrived, they found a woman who had been shot in the neck. She was taken to the hospital where she is now in stable, but serious condition.

Investigators have determined that two of the woman’s grandsons were arguing over money and started shooting at each other inside the house.

Steven L. Taggart, 28, who lives at the home, was arrested and charged on an outstanding aggravated assault warrant unrelated to the incident.

His brother, Kevin D. McCray, 36, who also lives at the home, is wanted on charges of attempted murder, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon for shooting at his brother.

Investigators are currently consulting with the commonwealth’s attorney’s office regarding further charges against both men.

Anyone with any information on McCray’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both methods are anonymous.
