NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A man was shot Saturday night in Norfolk’s Ballentine Place community.
Police tell 10 On Your Side that a shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. in the 3300 block of E. Princess Anne Road. This is just off Ingleside Road. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man who had been shot.
He was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with serious injuries.
Police were focusing their efforts on the parking lot of the Walmart Neighborhood Market. The WAVY crew that responded to the scene saw nearly a dozen evidence markers in the parking lot, and shattered glass.
Norfolk Police have not released any suspect information.
The father of a woman who works at Walmart told 10 On Your Side there were actually two shooting incidents in that parking lot Saturday.
Glen Jones said he answered a call from his daughter just after 6 p.m.
“When she first called me I was scared,” Jones said.
He said that another employee was shot with a pellet gun.
“All of these are young kids working in the grocery store. How do parents feel?” Jones wondered.
There are signs in the parking lot alluding to camera footage, but neither Walmart or Norfolk police have responded to 10 On Your Side about whether they identified a suspect or if officers responded to a pellet gun incident.
Jones says action needs to be taken on gun violence.
“We need, as a people, to do something about our Second Amendment,” he said.
If you have any information about what happened, please submit a tip via the P3 tips line or call the Crime Line at 1-888-lock-u-up.
