NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — It’s been nearly two months since a Norfolk father was fatally shot in the Diggs Park neighborhood. The case is still unsolved, but his family is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his killer.

22-year-old Jaivon Brittingham was walking home from a nearby store when he was gunned down in the 1500 block of Berkley Avenue Ext. on June 23. Emergency services took Brittingham to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, where he died.

A woman was also injured in the shooting but survived.

Brittingham’s family says he was a father of two. He lived nearby where the shooting took place and was known as “Memphis” in the neighborhood.
