HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - Police have identified the gunman wanted for shooting a 52-year-old man on Sept. 6. who died more than a week later.
Police spokesman Sgt. Jason Price said detectives have secured warrants against Davon Pierre Brooks, 23, who has a last-known address in the 1100 block of Jebbs Place, Newport News. Police said Brooks shot Sam Edward Small in the upper torso while inside his home in the first block of Parks Drive just before 9 p.m on Sept. 6.
Doctors pronounced Small dead from his injuries at 9:09 p.m. Saturday.
Price said the investigation revealed the shooting stemmed from an argument between Brooks and Small, who knew each other.
Anyone with information about Brooks whereabouts encouraged to contact the Hampton Police Division at 727-6111 or Crime Line at 1- 888-LOCK-U-UP. Crime Line callers remain anonymous and never appear in court.
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.
