One dead one injured in shooting in CU parking lot
CHESTERFIELD, Va. (4/20/12)--One person is dead and another injured as a result of a shooting that occurred in the parking lot of Virginia State University FCU in Ettrick, Va.

Police said Tyrail W. Hughes, 20, of Petersburg, Va., was fatally wounded after he and two other young men confronted a group of four males sitting on a curb near the $11 million asset credit union, said Chesterfield police Capt. David Pritchard (Richmond-Times Dispatch April 18).

Hughes and his friends approached the second group of males, who felt threatened, resulting in a confrontation, Pritchard told the newspaper.

An unidentified male from the second group then pulled a pistol and fired several shots, fatally wounding Hughes. A stray bullet struck an 18-year-old university student who was not involved in the confrontation and happened to be walking by, Pritchard told the paper.

The unidentified student was treated at a local medical facility for a gunshot wound to his foot and released.

Surveillance cameras in the area captured the entire incident, Pritchard told the paper. Investigators are reviewing that footage to identify the participants, he added.
