Two city of Richmond police officers injured at shooting range in Caroline County.

Richmond Times Dispatch:

Two Richmond police officers were injured by shrapnel during target practice at the department’s firing range today in Caroline County, but neither injury was believed to be life-threatening, authorities said.

Police early this afternoon confirmed that the incident had occurred, but officials said they were still gathering information and had no other immediate details.

The Richmond Police Department maintains two shooting ranges: an indoor facility at its police academy and an outdoor range in Caroline.

Stupid question: Where exactly is their shooting range in Caroline County located? I’m going to guest Fort A.P. Hill.

    What the heck were they shooting at a gun range that injured them with SHRAPNEL? Ricochets, negligent discharge, etc….but SHRAPNEL?

    That implies explosives….

    I think the range is located on Ruther Glen Road near the Caroline Pines subdivision. I’ve driven past a small sign on the road (on the left side as you travel south from Rogers Clark Blvd.) several times that says something like “Richmond Firearms Range Facility.”

  3. Thanks for the info. I admittedly don’t spend that much time down that way. :)
