NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Police say a man is dead following a shooting in Norfolk Friday night.
The shooting was reported around 9:40 p.m. in the 7400 block of Tidewater Drive, police said.
Officers arrived to find a man, later identified as 38-year-old Norman E. James, suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
10 On Your Side went to the scene, which appeared to be at 7-Eleven.
WAVY spoke with Chief Larry Boone on the scene.
“The community needs to address this. A rally, forums, all the things we do across Hampton Roads, that’s not gonna cut it. It takes time to change behavior. A long time,” Boone said.
Police have arrested and charged Laurence L. Clark, 21, of Norfolk, with second-degree murder and use of a firearm. Clark is currently being held in the Norfolk City Jail with no bond.
