A mother called 911 moments before her son allegedly ran her down with a car Thursday morning, according to Henrico County police.
Robyn I. Keels, 59, of Chesterfield County, was killed. Her 30-year-old son, Andre Vincent Keels of Henrico, has been charged with second-degree murder.
Henrico police initially responded to the 7800 block of Point Hollow Drive for a mental health call for service. At 9:27 a.m. on Thursday, a 911 caller reported a naked man outside yelling, according to police. Lt. Matt Pecka, a spokesman for the department, later said it was Robyn Keels who had initially called police.
By the time officers arrived, they found Robyn Keels “with trauma” in a nearby front yard. The naked man, later identified as her son, was in the driver’s seat of a Hyundai SUV, which police said was used to strike the woman.
Police said the deadly interaction occurred just before officers arrived.
Andre Keels was taken to a hospital and medically cleared before he was taken into custody.
Police said they are working alongside the state medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
