Man arrested in White Oak Village mall shooting

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Police arrested a 23-year-old man, Henrico, in connection with a shooting at the White Oak Village mall on Laburnum Avenue in March.

Officers were called to the mall just before midday on Monday, March 23, after people gathered around two vehicles argued and started shooting at each other.

Admittedly, no one was hit by gunfire, but one person was hit by a suspicious vehicle leaving the scene.

Dae’Shawn Tramaine Singleton was arrested without incident and is being held without bail at the Henrico County Jail, Henrico police officials said Friday.

Police said the investigation into the case is still ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000. Tips can also be submitted online at P3Tips.com. Both methods are anonymous.

A woman caught in the crossfire in a shopping center

A delivery man, a woman in her 60s, found herself caught in the middle of the shooting.

“Instead of coming to my car, I turned around towards the restaurant and tripped. I saw the car coming towards me. I was screaming to let them know someone was down,” said the wife of Crime Insider Jon Burkett.

The shooting shook the nerves of those who regularly shop here.

“It doesn’t make me want to come by myself. Honestly, I stop like this on my way home to pick up some things when I get home from work. But if I’m on my own, I usually try not to stop. because you hear everything happening these days and you never know what might happen,” one client said.

The driver said she made a delivery in a ‘more crime-prone area’ before White Oak and said the drop off was peaceful.

“Then, in a place where you might not expect it, it happens,” she said. “I believe God had his angels encamped around me. It’s not my time, that’s why I’m still here.”
