After dropping off his daughter during a custody exchange, a father was shot in the parking lot of a police station over the weekend.
Stuart D. Jeffries, 33, was shot and killed by his ex-new wife’s boyfriend inside a Virginia police station last week, according to WTVR. During the custody exchange, Jeffries, who had gone to drop off his eight-year-old daughter, was killed in front of her in the parking lot.
Jeffries was shot in the parking lot of the Appomattox Police Station at 2920 W. Broad St., according to the Chesterfield Police Department. The road is known as the Hundred Road. The incident occurred at around 6:30 pm last January 16, 2022.
On Facebook, a relative of Jeffries talked about the horrific shooting.
“Now this one just pissed me off!! Cuz was shot and killed trying to be a good father. There are so many unnecessary killings going on in our community. We have so many so called wanna be gangstas that will kill someone over stupid mess! Everyone is walking around with a gun trying to prove they ain’t no punk or they ain’t soft. I myself was guilty of this stupidity. Killing someone doesn’t make you a man, but walking away does.”
