Man shot and killed on MacDonald Road in Chesapeake


CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Chesapeake police are searching for the person who shot and killed a 31-year-old man on MacDonald Road Thursday night.

Police say the victim, identified as Deontae Poole, was found dead at a home in the 1300 block of MacDonald Road. Officers were dispatched just before 9 p.m.

The unidentified shooter left the area before officers arrived, but police canvassed the area Thursday night to find the person responsible and any witnesses who may have seen the shooter in the area at the time.

There was little information on the suspect as of 6 p.m. Friday, but police said they believe the person involved is still armed.

WAVY TV 10 spoke with a man who lives in a home near MacDonald Manor, where the shooting happened.

He said his wife was outside smoking a cigarette Thursday night when she heard what sounded like a single gunshot.

Police are asking anyone in the area who has security cameras to review the footage and see if there’s any video that could help police in their investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or submit a tip online.
