Detectives have arrested one man and are seeking a second in Sunday’s fatal shooting at the Pilot Travel Center in Chesterfield County that killed a Dinwiddie County man.
Chesterfield police on Monday identified the victim as Keon A. Clanton, 35, of the 17300 block of Old Stage Road in Dinwiddie.
Police responded about 6:05 p.m. Sunday to multiple calls of a shooting at the travel center at 2126 Ruffin Mill Road. Upon arrival, officers located Clanton suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, and learned that a suspect vehicle had fled the area. Clanton died after being taken to a hospital.
A short time later, police responded to a vehicle crash near the intersection of West Hundred Road and U.S. 1 involving the suspect vehicle. Darnell S. White, 32, was taken into custody at this scene, police said.
A second man fled the crash scene. He was described as about 6 feet 3 inches tall and wearing a white T-shirt and red gym shorts. Police said he was spotted on surveillance cameras in a mobile home community near the crash scene.
