“It was an attempted robbery by the juvenile,” Carpenter said. The attempted robbery escalated when the teen allegedly pulled out his pistol, leading to a gunfire exchange with the officer. The boy died at the scene.

The officer was shot in the torso, but his wounds are not life-threatening.

A police spokesman said the officer in question is expected to make a full recovery.

“Officer Misegades, a four-year veteran of the Department, was treated and released for his injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery,” said a Richmond Police spokesperson. “Due to this being an active investigation, the Richmond Police Department will defer all questions to the Chesterfield Police Department.”
