    Fatal shooting in Richmond, VA was self-defense, police say

    A fatal shooting Wednesday night in North Richmond was a case of self defense, police said yesterday.

    Darrell Jerome Ross, 38, shot and killed Edward Mitchell Perry Jr., 29, after Perry came into Ross' home with a gun, looking for someone with whom he had had a disagreement, police said.

    Also during the ordeal, Perry shot an 18-year-old man in the hand, police said. The shooting took place at 10:15 p.m. in the 3100 block of Griffin Avenue. The residence is near the intersection with West Ladies Mile Road, north of Brookland Park Boulevard.

    Ross was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, but police said they do not anticipate additional charges.

    Police declined to provide additional details about the incident. A woman and two men at the house on Griffin Avenue declined to discuss in detail what had happened.

    Because police have determined the killing to be self-defense, they are not counting it as a homicide. Police report that the city has had two homicides this year. Last year, they officially recorded 32 killings, but that total does not include four cases considered justifiable homicide or manslaughter. -- Reed Williams
