A young man who died after being found shot in a car that crashed into the front porch of a Chesterfield County home Thursday has been identified as 18-year-old Bryson Andrew Mitchell.

Chesterfield police said Friday that Mitchell lived in the 6300 block of Gatesgreen Drive, just down the street from where the silver Hyundai Elantra he apparently was driving crashed into the front porch of a home in the 6200 block of Gatesgreen Drive.

Authorities responded at 4:13 a.m. Thursday to the crash, which happened in a neighborhood off Krause Road near the county’s courthouse and government complex.

Mitchell was found unconscious and suffering from a gunshot wound in the car. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His death is being investigated as a homicide.
