Correction: Police clarified that this is a barricade situation.


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Suspects wanted in connection to the shooting of a woman overnight in the Norview area were taken into custody Wednesday morning after an hours-long barricade situation.

Around 9:15 a.m., WAVY got video of at least two men being brought out in handcuffs at the Timbers Townhomes complex at Johnstons Road and Chesapeake Blvd. Several elderly people in pajamas were also escorted out.

Police say they were first dispatched to the area around 12:50 a.m. Wednesday for the report of a gunshot victim and found a woman with a non life-threatening gunshot wound. She is expected to recover.

Officers later spotted the suspects’ car and tried to pull them over, but the suspects fled and pulled into the Timbers complex, barricading themselves into the apartment in the 1300 block of Johnstons Road.

Police asked the public to avoid the area during the standoff, and several roads were blocked off. The bomb squad, SWAT and other units all responded, and the situation eventually ended about eight hours later.

So far police have not identified the suspects, or if there were more than the two people seen in handcuffs, and haven’t shared charges. They did say in their update that a stolen vehicle was recovered and guns had been seized.
