Shewey’s sister was also injured in the shooting and had to be airlifted to a Richmond hospital, but she has since been released, officials said. Her fiance was the person who ran to get help.
Dr. Kevin Edwards, superintendent of Greensville Schools, confirmed that a “Greensville County High School student was killed in what appears to be a senseless act of violence,” WRIC reported.
Edwards added that the suspect in the shooting death of Shewey was also a student at Greensville County High School.
One witness said they “heard a pop" when the student allegedly fired at the other. "Then the young lady went down, the young man turns, they were just down the street, and then a second pop. And then he went down,” a witness told WRIC.
