Shots fired at 7-Eleven in Newport News


NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Newport News Police responded to a 7-Eleven overnight Tuesday in reference to several gunshots heard.

Officers arrived at the gas station located at 25th Street and Jefferson Avenue around 2:10 a.m. and made contact with the clerk at the store. The 32-year-old Newport News woman told them she was shot at by a group of males from outside the store. They were last seen fleeing in a blue Ford SUV.
