Police: Pizza delivery driver shot, killed in Chesapeake


CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — A pizza delivery driver was shot and killed Thursday night in Chesapeake, a police spokesperson confirms.

The Chesapeake Police Department said it responded to the Marina Point Apartments around 9:45 p.m. for a shots fired call and found someone who had been fatally shot inside a vehicle. 

The person killed was a female pizza delivery driver, police said. She was later identified as 30-year-old Stephanie Brainerd of Virginia Beach.

Shortly after, officers attempted to stop a vehicle for reckless driving, which led to a short pursuit that ended in Portsmouth near Maryview Hospital.

No additional details were provided in a police press release, but anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
