HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - Police say a Crime Line tip led to the arrest of a man wanted for the shooting death of a Hampton teen.
According to Sgt. Jason Price with the Hampton Police Division, officers were patrolling the 2000 block of Seldendale Drive Dec. 1 when they heard shots fired just before 1:45 a.m. They then located 19-year-old Bartholomew Kyle Robinson of Hampton suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso.
Price said Robinson was sitting with a 19-year-old female inside a 2008 Dodge Caliber when he was approached by three men.
Following a verbal altercation, one of the men took out a handgun and shot Robinson. Price said the incident appears to be drug-related and before the three men took off, they stole money and personal items from Robinson and the woman with him.
