Two people are dead and at least eight others were wounded after multiple shootings near the oceanfront in Virginia Beach, Va., on Friday night.
Police officials say officers were on patrol in the city’s resort area when they heard multiple gunshots at 11:22 p.m., according to a statement on Saturday. When they arrived to the scene, they found several victims suffering from gunshot wounds.
One woman died at the scene and at least eight people were transported to hospitals for their injuries. Authorities said the injuries ranged from “serious to life-threatening.”
One Virginia Beach police officer was also taken to a hospital for “minor injuries.”
The department’s homicide unit is investigating what happened, but police say there are no suspects as of yet.
Authorities said an officer-involved shooting also took place on Saturday just a few blocks from the shooting near the waterfront.
