Va. Beach man shot during argument in Hampton


HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Charges have been dismissed against a man arrested in connection with a shooting on Goldsboro Drive in January.

Officers arrived to find a 26-year-old Virginia Beach man inside a home in the 5100 block of Goldsboro Drive suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

According to police, the victim and another man who he knew, got into an argument around 10:30 p.m. and at some point during the argument shots were fired, landing the victim in a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police say this appears to be an isolated incident and everyone involved cooperated with investigators.

21-year-old Jovarius Lee Hardrick was arrested and charged with malicious wounding/maiming, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and shooting within an occupied dwelling. WAVY News 10 has confirmed his charges were later dismissed.
