RICHMOND -- A man was shot while walking near the Hilltop Mall early Saturday morning, police said.
Sgt. T. Ellis said the man was on Shane Drive near Hilltop Drive at about 1 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. A shot rang out, the victim suffered a wound to one of his legs and was taken to a hospital. Ellis said Saturday afternoon that the man was in stable condition; the suspects remain at large.
An officer responding to the sound of a gunshot about 10 minutes earlier had stopped a car nearby on Lancaster Drive, and arrested two occupants for possession of a firearm. Ellis said it's unclear whether the incidents are related.
