Man shot to death at military housing in Virginia Beach

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A man was shot to death Friday at Midway Manor Lincoln Military Housing in Virginia Beach.

At 3:10 p.m., officers were called to the 1000 block of Minneapolis Drive for a gunshot wound victim. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male who was pronounced dead at the scene.

“We were sitting on the couch, we heard what sounded like gunshots,” said Marie Thomas, a neighbor.

Police said they have a suspect. At last check, that person was not in custody.

“It’s terrifying to me,” another neighbor said.

Residents who spoke with 8News sister station WAVY and said they didn’t know the victim or the residents who live at the home near to where his body was found.

“They have lots of people coming and going a lot, that’s all I know,” one neighbor said.

“In and out, all hours of the days and nights,” said Sheila Eccleston.

A neighbor told WAVY that the victim was a young man, possibly in his late teens.

Family members at the scene did not want to comment.

Several WAVY viewers reported seeing a large police presence at Riverbend Road and Green Lakes Drive, about three and a half miles from the shooting. Dispatchers said that scene was related to the homicide investigation. Police have not confirmed that information.

Video captured at least one officer wearing a helmet with a megaphone in hand.
