Two men hospitalized in shooting near ODU

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Norfolk police have confirmed that two men were shot early Sunday.

First responders took the men to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where they are expected to recover.

It happened just after 1:00 a.m. in the 1200 block of Hampton Boulevard near 40th Street.

When police arrived they found two men, ages 19 and 22, suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

According to witnesses, an argument broke out between several people at a party.

During the argument a man began firing a gun, police say.

At this time, detectives do not believe that this shooting is related to another shooting on Killam Avenue which killed a man, and sent two other ODU students to the hospital.

According to a press release from Norfolk Police, over the weekend both NPD and Old Dominion University Police increased patrols in and around the campus. “We want students to enjoy their homecoming weekend without fear of being hurt. If anyone sees something that does not feel right, trust that instinct, leave the area, and give police a call right away,” said a Norfolk Police patrol officer.

Old Dominion University alerted students to the incident at 4:22 a.m., according to an email obtained by 10 On Your Side.
