VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Two people were killed during an officer-involved shooting in Virginia Beach. Police said a suspect shot at officers, who returned fire.

It happened outside the 7-Eleven at the corner of Lynnhaven Parkway and Salem Road. A little before midnight Saturday, Virginia Beach police got information about a person of interest in a homicide case.

Officers found the subject in a car outside the 7-Eleven at 2093 Lynnhaven Parkway. When officers got close, police say the subject shot at them. A bullet went through one officer’s shirt. He was not harmed.

“Over the fence over there we heard pop-pop,” a person who lived nearby said. “Then a moment of silence then I heard a loud burst of gunfire. It sounded like an automatic weapon.”

Those officers shot back at the car and hit the subject. During the shooting bullets also struck the female driver of the car. Both the driver and suspect died at the scene. They were identified Monday as 35-year-old Angelo Delano Perry of Virginia Beach and 28-year-old India Kager of College Park, Maryland.

“There was a whole bunch of cop cars racing to the scene and there was a van over there with bullet holes in it and a black car,” Daquon Brown, who saw the investigation said. “It looked like it was crashed; looked like the van crashed into it.”

“The officers that were involved in this will be placed on administrative duty,” Virginia Beach Public Information Officer Tonya Borman said. “Any case that is officer-involved is also looked at internally.  It’s a three-prong investigation involving our internal affairs, our homicide unit and the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.”

Ofc. Borman said an infant was in the car at the time of the shooting. That child was not harmed and was turned over to Child Protective Services.

Virginia Beach Police are also conducting an active investigation of other suspects related to the original homicide investigation.
