VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - The moderator of Wednesday's town hall meeting in Virginia Beach on Oceanfront violence told WAVY.com he is encouraging residents to "take back the beach."
Tens of thousands of young people gathered at the Oceanfront last Saturday night, and police were called out more than 300 times. Among reported incidents were stabbings, shootings, larcenies and assaults.
Local DJ Allen Fabijan is encouraging Beach residents to give support to Oceanfront businesses during this time.
"Stay at a hotel, grab something to eat, have a drink. Take a picture, put it on Facebook, put it on YouTube, tweet it out there. Let everyone know why we love Virginia Beach. You know all the positive things that are there on a daily basis and we're not defined by one incident," Fabijan said.
Police say a 2-year-old and a 23-year-old Navy sailor based in Virginia were killed in a crash on Interstate 64 in southern Indiana near Corydon.
