Richmond man killed in Sunday shooting

on April 30, 2013

Roy Hill III, a 22-year-old Richmond resident, was shot dead while sitting in his car on the 2700 block of Ohio Avenue in Richmond Sunday afternoon.

Richmond Police spokeswoman Detective Nicole Abetkov said RPD was alerted to the shooting at 2:20 pm on Sunday by its ShotSpotter system and several calls to 911.

“He had several gunshot wounds,” Abetkov said, adding that it looked like Hill was shot multiple times from around the car with different caliber guns.

Hill was pronounced dead at the scene. He is the eighth homicide victim in Richmond this year.

Abetkov said the RPD does not have any suspects and is interviewing witnesses and reviewing footage from a nearby camera.

Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call Detective Decious at (510) 620-6669. There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

    Why does RPD claim only 4 homices this year? (acutally 3 plus one at BART). This article says 8.
