VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia Beach police are investigating a shooting that left two people dead and another severely hurt near Naval Air Station Oceana on Monday evening.

Police were called to the 1400 block of Gate Tree Court just after 5 p.m. for shots fired in the area.

Virginia Beach police found two men with gunshot wounds. A coroner pronounced both dead on the scene. The third victim, a woman, was shot in the head.

She was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to Virginia Beach police.

One person on scene is detained for additional questioning about the incident, however, there are no charges or further details at this time.

On Tuesday, 10 On Your Side spoke to neighbors about the crime.

“I’ve never had to deal with anything like that,” neighbor Kemia Thompson said. “Call me coddled, call me whatever you want, but I shouldn’t have to.”

Thompson said she heard about the shooting while at work. Someone sent her a text message about it.

“The first thing I see when I open the link is my mother’s truck with tape around it,” she said. “So you can imagine, I didn’t know what happened.”

Virginia Beach Police Department Public Information Officer Kane says they do not have a suspect in custody, but there is no threat to the community.
