A 101-year-old Richmond woman was accidentally shot by an adult grandson during a family feud early Sunday, police say.
The woman was shot in the neck as two of her grandsons argued over money and began shooting at each other at about 12 a.m., Richmond Police Department officials said. She is reported in serious condition.
Police have arrested one of the brothers, Steven L. Taggart, 28, on an unrelated outstanding assault warrant. They are still looking for the other brother, Kevin D. McCray, 36, who is now 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.
Both of the men lived in the home, in the unit block of East 20th Street, where the shooting occurred.
Investigators and the commonwealth’s attorney’s office are discussing whether charges will be filed against both men, police said.
