One man is dead and two others critically injured after a pair of drive-by shootings in Richmond that authorities say may be related.

In the first incident around 6:40 p.m. Thursday, several shots were fired from a vehicle that pulled up alongside a group of people in unincorporated North Richmond. Authorities say a local resident was the only member of the group who was shot and died on the street.

About 20 minutes later, several shots were fired from a vehicle that pulled up to another group of people in Richmond. Two men suffered life-threatening injuries.

The shooting victims have not been identified.

Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French says the two groups that came under fire are known to dislike each other. French says the second shooting may be in retaliation for the first.
