A juvenile suspect has been charged with a firearm violation. Two others who were detained after the crash have since been released.

Police said Pittman is still at-large. Those with information that could help authorities find him could receive a combined $3,500 reward. Anyone with information on his whereabout is asked to Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or the ATF Joint Support Operations Center at 1-800-800-3855. 

“We’ve had some calls saying ‘should we be in fear?'” Drew said. “So let me say this. I would consider Mr. Pittman an individual we need to get into custody off the streets of Newport News. If anyone has information, please come forward but I am fully confident, fully confident in the men and women of this organization and federal partners that he will be located quickly.”

Drew is proud of the way his officers handled the chaotic scene and also thanks for the community, who he says are sending in tips, for cooperating.

10 On Your Side did speak with Verley’s daughter, who was driving the van, off camera.

She told us they were headed to the store to get a muffin for Verley when the crash happened.

Verley’s daughter described her as “golden hearted” and once you met her, you had a friend for life.

Drew says he spoke with the family at the hospital Wednesday night and again over the phone Thursday. He sends condolences on behalf of the whole department.

Verley is originally from New York and moved to the area 14 years ago to be with her daughter.
