[ARCHIVED] Shooting inside a Norfolk McDonald's sends one to the hospital


NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – Norfolk detectives are investigating a shooting Saturday night that occurred inside a Norfolk McDonald's.

Around 11:30 p.m. police were called to the McDonald's located at 745 Newtown Road for a shooting.  Once police arrived they found a man in his twenties inside the restaurant suffering from a gunshot wound. He was quickly taken by paramedics to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with serious injuries; however, he is expected to recover.
