Man shot on Colley Avenue near 7-Eleven in Norfolk


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Norfolk police say a man was shot near a Colley Avenue 7-Eleven on Tuesday night.

The man was taken to Norfolk General with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Emergency communications received a call at 7:09 p.m. reporting the shooting at the corner of 38th Street and Colley Avenue. An employee who works at the convenience store said the shooting happened outside.

Police taped off the parking lot and placed several evidence markers next to a gold car in front of the store. 

10 On Your Side spoke with a man who lives nearby. He didn’t want to be identified, but he said he was walking his dog when he heard several shots followed by a woman screaming.

“As soon as I got to the corner of the street, at least six gun shots go off in a row. You heard screaming from a female. The words that I could (hear) was ‘Stop it, get away, stop,’” he said.

The man said he walked up on the scene as paramedics arrived. 

“An ambulance pulled up, walked inside and you could see them walking up around the counter with a stretcher and went behind it and picked up a black male,” he said. “It was pretty chaotic. A lot of people were coming out of restaurants, local shops.”

Police have not released additional information, but say the shooting is still under investigation. If you have information, call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
