SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A man suspected of firing a shot inside a Suffolk Taco Bell restaurant last month is currently behind bars at Norfolk City Jail.

Norfolk Police arrested Jalil Evans, 23, on Oct. 23 on outstanding warrants from Suffolk in connection with the Oct. 8 shooting incident. He is facing charges of discharging a firearm within a building (5 counts) and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Court records show Evans’ next court appearance is scheduled for November 12.

Suffolk Police said the incident happened at the Taco Bell in the 1400 block of North Main Street around 6:35 p.m.

Surveillance cameras in the restaurant captured the crime.

Police say the suspect, believed to be Evans, entered the restaurant and began arguing with an employee about “an issue not related to the restaurant.” The suspect fired a shot, then left the scene.

There were no injuries.

Suffolk Police confirmed they are no longer looking for the other person seen in the surveillance photos they released.
