HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Police have arrested a 16-year-old murder suspect two weeks after a 20-year-old Hampton woman was fatally wounded in a shooting on Berkley Drive.
Hampton police announced Wednesday that Zakwan Tyler, of Hampton, was arrested on murder and gun charges in connection to the homicide on June 22.
20-year-old Raegan Chisley was the victim in the shooting, which happened after an argument, police said.
Chisley was a junior biomedical sciences major at North Carolina Central University and planned to attend medical school.
“Raegan was a remarkable student who showed commitment, dedication and a passion for learning,” a statement from NCCU Chancellor Johnson O. Akinleye read. “… She was indeed a bright and shining example of The Eagle Promise and would have undoubtedly been a thought leader in the medical and science fields.”
