NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A 14-year-old was injured in a shooting at the Masonic Lodge in Norfolk Sunday night.
Police were called to 2313 Tidewater Drive at 9:35 p.m. for a “gunshot disturbance.” The teen victim was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. According to Norfolk Police, his injuries are not life-threatening.
Nearby resident Winetta Braxton told WAVY.com she heard the gunshots and then peaked out of her window.
“I saw three young people, and two ran this way, started speed walking this way, and one guy went that way,” she said.
Another neighbor, Ernest Jefferson, said he’s sad to hear about the incident, but not surprised: “Kids now are always getting shot. They are fighting, beefing and all of that, but it’s very sad to find out a 14-year-old got shot.”
Police are searching for a suspect. If you have any information about this shooting, call the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-Lock-U-Up.
