PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - Portsmouth police have charged one person in connection with a deadly shooting that occurred around just after 9 p.m. Sunday.
Portsmouth police responded to a call of shots fired in the area of Deep Creek Boulevard and Frederick Boulevard. When they arrived on scene, they found a person dead from apparent gunshot wounds in the driver's seat of a Dodge Avenger.
Police say an investigation reveals that 19-year-old Jeff Barnes, of the 3000 block of Downes Street, was the shooter in this incident. Barnes has been charged with murder, and use of a firearm in commission of a felony, according to police spokesperson Jan Westerbeck.
Barnes is wanted by police.
Westerbeck says two more suspects are wanted in connection with this shooting, and that with the help of local media, two men have been identified from surveillance photos. The other two suspects have not been charged at this time.
That victim has been identified as 19-year-old Keiontre Laquan Rodgers, of the 6200 block of Apple Street in Suffolk.
An investigation later revealed that Rodgers stopped at a gas pump when a suspect approached Rodgers while he was sitting in the Dodge. Police say after an encounter, a suspect shot Rodgers. According to police, Rodgers then tried to drive away but crashed into a utility pole across the street from the gas station.
Police say Rodgers was not the registered owner of the vehicle.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Barnes is asked to call 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
