RPD Investigates Homicide on Hull Street

November 6, 2016

The Richmond Police Department is investigating a homicide that occurred overnight on the city’s south side.

Around 1:14 a.m., officers were called to the 2700 block of Hull Street for a report of a shooting. They quickly located a person with gunshot wounds – a man dressed as a woman – lying unresponsive on the ground. He was transported to a local hospital where, at 10:16 a.m., he was pronounced dead.

The victim has been identified as William D. Norwood, 30, of the 3800 block of Caulder Street.

RPD detectives have interviewed a few people, but there are others they would like to hear from; especially those who were in the area last night or may have known the victim.

“We would like to speak to anyone who may have information about Mr. Norwood – his activity that night and possible associates,” said Lt. Donald Davenport. “We have interviewed a Good Samaritan who stopped to render aid, but there were others in the area, too, last night. We would like them to give us a call.”

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call Major Crimes Detective Anthony Coates at (804) 646-0729 or contact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or at
