A man and two women were charged in a shooting that injured a tractor-trailer driver while he was traveling on Chippenham Parkway on Thursday afternoon. Chesterfield County police say the shooting was “road-rage related.”
Chazz L. Gordon, 31, was charged with malicious wounding, shooting into an occupied vehicle, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and felony eluding. Police believe that Gordon, of the 4500 block of Anderson Highway in Powhatan County, was driving a gold Hyundai Sonata that tried to cut off the tractor-trailer and fired the shot at its driver.
Keyonna M. Wise, 26, of the 1800 block of Southlawn Avenue in Richmond, was charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle.
Khadijah R. Neal, 25, of the 2100 block of Accommodation Street in Richmond, was charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle and possession of marijuana. Wise and Neal were passengers in the Sonata, police said.
The shooting occurred around 2:40 p.m. Thursday.
Police said the tractor-trailer had just merged onto northbound Chippenham Parkway when its driver heard a gunshot. The driver realized he had been shot and saw a gold Hyundai Sonata occupied by three people passing him and heading north on Chippenham Parkway.
The tractor-trailer driver recognized the vehicle as one that attempted to pull out in front of him on Commerce Road in Richmond, police said. The driver, who suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening, called police and was transported to a hospital.
An officer in the area spotted the suspect vehicle and followed it. When the officer tried to stop the car, its driver fled and a pursuit ensued. Officers pursued the vehicle, which ultimately turned onto Ferguson Street in Richmond, where the three suspects attempted to flee. After a brief foot chase, all three suspects were taken into custody, police said.
All three are being held at the Chesterfield Jail without bond.
