NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A man was shot along East Brambleton Avenue in Norfolk early Monday morning on a playground at an apartment complex.
Officers received a call for a shooting around 3 a.m. in the 300 block of East Brambleton Avenue at the Young Terrace apartment complex, Chris Amos with the Norfolk Police Department said. When officers arrived, they found a male victim, awake and alert, suffering from a gunshot wound.
The victim was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for treatment where his condition remains unknown.
According to Amos, officers were told a suspect walked back into a home in the area of the shooting. They had not been able to contact the suspect and the department's special operations team as well as a hostage negotiator worked to determine if he is in the home.
The scene was clear by 7 a.m. after police successfully entered the apartment, but did not locate the suspect.
Amos confirmed to WAVY.com around 9 a.m. the shooting actually occurred on the playground within the apartment complex. He says they do not have a motive. They are working on putting together a suspect description.
