So I came out, saw a man on my front lawn rolling around, hollering," said Reverend Virgil Gardner, who found the victim in his yard.

The victim was taken to the hospital and is listed as critical but stable. Officers are still on scene conducting their investigation. If you have information on the shooting, please contact Richmond Police at (859) 623-8911.
