Violent crimes rampant during hurricane weekend

Three shootings occurred during the weekend of Aug. 26-28, which police continue to investigate and pursue suspects.

Chesterfield County Police have released the identities of the victims of a domestic related murder that occurred in a home in the 13100 block of Stockleigh Drive.

Shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, police received a call from Pennsylvania police, who asked that officers check the welfare of anyone at the Stockleigh Drive address.  Upon entering the residence police, discovered the bodies of the female occupant of the residence, Carrie P. Egland, 36; a male friend, Scott T. Allred, 40; and his child, 7.  

Carrie P. Egland’s estranged husband, Leonard J. Egland, 37, was soon developed as a suspect in the incident. He was also a suspect in the homicide of his mother-in-law in Pennsylvania, where he twice exchanged gunfire with police officers. Pennsylvania police later found him in a field in Warwick Township, dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot.

Also, Chesterfield County Police are investigating a shooting that occurred in a home in the 2700 block of Executive Drive on Sunday, Aug. 28.

Police were called to a residence in the 2700 block of Executive Drive just before 11 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28. Upon arrival, police encountered an 18-year-old female victim, who had been shot while exiting the house. She was transported to VCU Medical Center, where she is now in critical but stable condition.

A second female victim in that case, who is 41 years old, was found inside the house. She was taken to VCU Medical Center, where she is now in stable condition. Near the second victim, police found her husband, Abdul A. Evans, 43, of the 2700 block of Executive Drive, who had been shot and was dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot. The first victim is Evans’ daughter.

Police say an apparent domestic dispute led to the shooting.

And lastly, police are seeking a man in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred in the 20900 block of Brickhouse Drive on Sunday, Aug. 28.

 At about 8 p.m. Sunday in the 2900 block of Brickhouse Drive, police found Montique D. Fitzgerald, who had been shot. Fitzgerald, 29, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The shooting was preceded by an altercation between Fitzgerald and the suspect, Brian K. Uzzle, 29. Police have obtained warrants for Uzzle, of the 20800 block of Sasha Court, for murder, illegal possession of a firearm and brandishing a firearm.
