VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Police believe a man was buying drugs before he was shot by an arrow in Virginia Beach, according to a search warrant obtained by 10 On Your Side.
According to the search warrant, a detective said the victim, Lamonte Perry, was buying narcotics at a home on Hilber Street and was shot by the arrow after a dispute.
The detective says a juvenile at the home claimed his stepfather was in front of the home with a bow and arrow. The juvenile didn’t witness the shooting, the warrant says.
Perry is a senior at Green Run High School. He told 10 On Your Side earlier this week a group of people tried to rob him before he was shot. He denied that he went to the house to buy drugs.
The search warrant shows that investigators seized marijuana, a cross bow, a compound bow and arrows from the home.
No one has been charged. Perry was treated for non life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
