Attempted mugging at gunpoint turns violent

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs your help to identify and find a man who shot at and attempted to rob two victims in the 3100 block of Tanners Way on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010 at about 8:20 p.m.

The suspect approached the two victims, demanded money at gunpoint and then fired a single gunshot round in the air.  The suspect later pointed his weapon at the victims and fired several rounds, striking one of the victims once.  After being shot, the victim fought with the suspect, but the suspect was able to get away and avoid capture.  The witnesses described the suspect as a black male with a medium complexion and a goatee, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, thin or slender build and in his early 20s.
