Man shot multiple times on Welcome Road

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Investigators are working to find the person who shot and killed 25-year-old James Swain Jr.

Dispatchers took a call about shots fired around midnight in the 3100 block of Welcome Road, according to Chesapeake Police spokesman Officer Ravi Sheth. When officers arrived, they found a man’s body facedown in a grassy area behind an apartment building.

The man had been shot several times, Sheth said. Detectives did not find any identifying information on the man. They released his name Monday.

But there is still no information on suspects or a motive. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or text CHESTIP with information to CRIMES (274637).
