Ericelle C. Coleman—2016 Richmond Homicide #5

Here’s what we know so far.

We’re calling this a homicide because it has been officially termed as such by the Richmond Police Department. Before you tell us we’ve missed one–was it actually a death investigation (often self-defense)? Was it within city limits? Did the person die of wounds received in a different year? All of those deaths do not get officially counted as Richmond homicides for this year.


Ericelle C. Coleman, 27, of the 3000 block of Moss Side Avenue.

His obituary reads:

Mr. Ericell Coleman of Richmond Virginia entered into eternal rest on Monday February 1, 2016 at MCV Hospital Richmond Virginia.
