Police arrest, charge man with murder
Henrico Police Monday arrested and charged a man with first degree murder and the use of a firearm in commission of a felony following a shooting at the Cardinal Forest Apartments that left a 24-year-old man dead.
A child called police shortly before 7:30 a.m. Monday to report that an adult male had entered a residence in the 7700 block of Northbourne Court and shot another adult male. The subject was still in the apartment, the child said. When police arrived on scene, they established communications with the suspect and began negotiations. They determined that five people were inside: the victim, the suspect, a woman and two children, ages 12 and 8.
After approximately two hours, the woman advised negotiators that the suspect was unconscious and that she and the children were coming out. Henrico Police S.W.A.T. team members escorted the family to awaiting ambulances.
The woman suffered from a non-life threatening assault. The suspect, 33-year-old Antonio B. Farris of Richmond, was located in a back bathroom unconscious as the result of an undetermined medical condition. He was transported to VCU Medical Center, where he was treated and released into police custody. The victim of the shooting, Ryan Chhuom, 24 years of age, of Chesterfield died of a single gunshot wound the chest.
On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.
“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.

Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ is a magnificent, emotional ride
Explaining the nuts and bolts of Pixar’s new, exciting, innovative Inside Out – really digging into the film’s shape-and-color explanation of the human mind – would take up the entirety of this review. And probably three or four more (if movies had instruction manuals, Inside Out’s would be the size and general poundage of a cinder block).
It’s a complicated movie. So here’s the gist, in as simply-put terms can be. > Read more.
