NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Two people were taken to the hospital after an overnight shooting Saturday at a restaurant and lounge.
Police were called to the PM Restaurant and Lounge on East Princess Anne Road just after 2 a.m. When officers arrived on scene, they found a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound.
Medics took him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for treatment and he is expected to be okay.
While police were at the restaurant, they say another 19-year-old man was dropped off at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with a gunshot wound. His injuries are considered life-threatening.
Officials say after a preliminary investigation they found that both men were inside the restaurant when they were shot.
Those living near the restaurant say it is fairly quiet and were shocked to wake up and hear that people were injured.
“I’ve seen better days and bad days. It’s been peaceful until last night,” said one woman, who did not want to identify herself.
The neighbor says she’s lived on the street for 19 years and while the shooting comes as a surprised, she’s not entirely shocked it happened.
“Not really with the day and time with what goes on through all the 50 states. Everyday somebody’s getting gunned down. For what? I don’t know,” she said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
