RICHMOND (KCBS) – Police were searching for a woman suspected of shooting and killing a teenage boy outside of a Richmond apartment complex on Tuesday night.
Melinda Leketia Gaffney, 30, is wanted on a $1 million arrest warrant in connection with the murder of 16-year-old Terrance Forks, Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.
Abetkov said Gaffney and Forks were apparently fighting before she allegedly shot him in front of the Crescent Park Apartments in the 3900 block of Fleming Avenue.
Officers responded to the area after receiving an alert from the city’s ShotSpotter activation system and a 911 call about a fight and a possible shot fired at the same location, according to police.
Police arriving on the scene found Forks suffering from a gunshot wound. He died at the scene.
