Man killed, 2 hurt in shooting at Virginia shopping center


NORFOLK, Va. (NewsNation) — One man has been killed and two women were injured in a shooting at a Norfolk, Virginia, shopping center.

Investigators told WAVY, a NewsNation affiliate, the shooting happened at the MacArthur Center in downtown Norfolk just before 6:30 p.m.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene. Two women were shot in the ankles and taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone said the shooting unfolded as two people were fighting about money. At this time, authorities believe the victim and shooter are related.

“These are different times when people will do anything to settle a dispute,” Boone said.

Officers say the incident started inside a store at the shopping center. Security footage shows the suspect and a person of interest.
