NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A man in Norfolk has pleaded guilty more than a year after a shooting at a Wawa parking lot left another man dead.
The fatal shooting occurred just after 11 p.m. on August 8, 2020, at the parking lot of the Wawa located at 3360 East Princess Anne Road.
Police say the victim, 21-year-old Tabari Anthony, died following the shooting. Then-20-year-old Joseph K. Pagano was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and use of a firearm.
During his hearing Wednesday at the Norfolk Circuit Court, Pagano pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a felon (nonviolent within the last ten years). His sentencing date is set for October 22.
Correction: The original version of this story incorrectly said Pagano pleaded guilty to a murder charge.
