VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia Beach Police say a man died after being shot in a parking lot Friday night at the corner of Constitution Drive and Virginia Beach Boulevard.

Police say they received a call around 6:15 p.m. reporting a shooting near the intersection.

They arrived to find a man, later identified as 37-year-old Brian Orlando Hicks, shot in the parking lot of the Pembroke East Shopping Center. That’s in the 300 block of Constitution Drive.

Medics arrived and pronounced Hicks dead at the scene, police said.
