When they got on scene, deputies say they found the victim, who was later taken to a hospital.

The Sheriff’s Office is looking for two persons of interest in connection with the shooting

10 On Your Side spoke to York Poquoson Sheriff’s Office Captain of Investigations Tommy West, who says the victim is in the hospital with multiple gun shot wounds but is expected to recover.

West says they have no reason to believe the victim was involved with anything to spur a random act of violence like this.

He says they are looking for two suspects with very little descriptions.

“The victim had a video doorbell system that we were able to look at and it was dark and very hard to make any real detail out,” said West.

That is why he says they’re asking for people in the area to look at their home camera systems and email any findings to shield@yorkcounty.gov.

Community members can also call the Crime Line at 757-890-4999 or 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

“This is very concerning to us and we hope the community can pull together and get us some information that will help us find a suspect,” West added.

West says they will continue to look for videos in the area and hope to have more leads once the victim has recovered.
