PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — One man was killed and another was seriously injured in a shooting late Wednesday night in Portsmouth.
The call for the shooting in the 1100 block of Virginia Avenue came in around 11:40 p.m. on July 6.
Police say a man found shot in the upper body at the scene was pronounced dead. He was identified as 29-year-old Robert D. Parker, of Portsmouth.
While officers were still at the scene, they learned that another man walked into a local hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the lower body. They got that call at 11:46 p.m. and said the man’s injuries were serious but not considered life-threatening.
Police confirmed both men were shot on Virginia Avenue.
No suspect information has been shared at this time.
On July 15, Portsmouth Police released photos of individuals they believe are persons of interest in the shooting. They issued an update a few days later saying the individuals were located and identified and are no longer considered Persons of Interest.
Just moments before this shooting, police responded to a shooting on I-264 near Victory Boulevard that led to a crash, but it’s unclear if this is related to the other shooting.
