West Broad Street Homicide

Richmond Police detectives have arrested and charged a man in connection with last night’s homicide on West Broad Street.

At approximately 7:30 p.m. Thursday, officers received a call for shots fired in a parking lot in the 500 block of West Broad Street. Officers were on scene within a minute and found Marquis J. Richardson, 18, of Chester, suffering from gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. He died at the scene.

Quintin Washington, 28, of the 3900 block of Delmont Street, has been charged with voluntary manslaughter and use of firearm in commission of a felony.

Detectives believe an argument between the pair, who knew each other, was the motive for the shooting.

They are still in the early stages of the investigation and ask anyone with any information about this crime 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.
