A Chesterfield County man has been charged in a shooting that left him and another man wounded after apparently exchanging gunshots Monday evening in Ettrick, police said

Wallace M. Delk Jr., 29, who lives in the 14200 block of Beachmere Drive, was charged with felonious assault, use of a firearm in a felony, and possession of a gun after being convicted of a felony.

Police responded about 8:20 p.m. Monday to investigate a report of a man suffering from a gunshot wound near the 21100 block of Chesterfield Avenue, in the vicinity of Virginia State University. Arriving officers found the man, and he was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

A short time later, another man — later identified as Delk — was found on the Boulevard in Colonial Heights, police said. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said their preliminary investigation indicates that Delk and the other man, whose identity has not been released, shot each other.
