VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Police say one male gunshot victim was found lying on the ground on a Virginia Beach street Friday afternoon.
According to Grazia Moyers with the Virginia Beach Police Department, crews responded to a gunshot call in the 700 block of Hayes Avenue just after 2 p.m.
Moyers said the shooting is being investigated as a homicide. The victim, Charles Stephen Boston, 24, was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead a short time later. Boston, 24, was found on the same block of Hayes Avenue that he lived on.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
