Responding officers located a man suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and medics immediately transported the victim to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The man was pronounced dead after arrival.

Shortly thereafter, another gunshot victim was located in the 2300 block of Fairbanks Avenue. The man was also transported by medics to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where he is currently listed in stable condition.
