VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Police have two people in custody and are looking for two others after a male reported he was shot Wednesday afternoon.

A police helicopter is looking for the two other people and Virginia State Police are also helping in the search.

Police said on Twitter there is a heavy police presence in the area of N. Lynnhaven Road and Mustang Trail as they look for those involved.

Virginia Beach Police spokeswoman Tonya Pierce said police received a call reporting a gunshot wound in the 1100 block of Ocean Trace Lane at 3:54 p.m.

The complainant, a male, said they were shot and were self-transporting to the hospital.

Pierce said it “appears” the person has injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

As officers were nearing the location of the reported shooting, a vehicle matching the what police believed was the suspect vehicle passed officers.

Officers turned and followed the vehicle, which got on Interstate 264. It later got off onto N. Lynnhaven Parkway and eventually stopped at a dead end in the 3000 block of Pinewood Drive.

Police confirmed they pursued the vehicle on I-264 until it reached the end of Pinewood Drive.

Three people bailed out of the car. One other person, a female, was detained at the vehicle.

Shortly after, police took a male into custody nearby the incident. They used a police helicopter, police K9 and additional patrol officers to search the area.

Police are still looking for two other males who are at-large.

“This is still a very active investigation, further details will be provided as they become available,” police said.

Correction: Virginia Beach Police originally said there were two people in custody and one they were looking for. Police released new information around 6 p.m. Wednesday saying they are looking for two males, not just one. There are four people total police say are involved in the incident.
