Man, woman injured in double shooting at the Oceanfront

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) -- A double shooting left one man with serious injuries at the Oceanfront Saturday night. 

Police say the shooting happened just before 11 p.m. in the 1700 block of Atlantic Avenue near the Dairy Queen.

The second victim, a woman, has injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening, however, both victims were taken to a local hospital, according to police. 

" I want to say like 8 or 9 shots just pop off," an employee at a nearby restaurant tells 10 On Your Side.

The man says he was right across the road from where the shooting happened. He says he looked out of the restaurant and saw a man laying on the pavement. He tells 10 On Your Side a woman came to help him, but then she got shot too.

Workers in nearby businesses say dozens of people started running in different directions, many of them into the few stores that were still open. 

"I saw a lot of people out here earlier before we went into the club with their families, so just to think they could have been walking by when they were shooting and a kid could've gotten shot or something is so scary. It's terrifying," explained one woman who was at the Oceanfront when the shooting happened. 

There is no suspect information at this time and the incident is still under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 1 (888) LOCK-U-UP or submit a tip via P3 Tips.
