2 dead, 8 wounded in Virginia Beach oceanfront shootings

March 27, 2021 / 7:41 AM / AP

Two people are dead and eight people were wounded in shootings along Virginia Beach's oceanfront, police said Saturday. Eight people were shot just after 11 p.m. Friday, Virginia Beach police said in a news release. All eight were taken to local hospitals, with some of their conditions ranging from serious to life-threatening.

One woman died of a gunshot wound on the scene, the release said. At an earlier news conference, police Chief Paul Neudigate said the death possibly stemmed from an unrelated shooting. The release also said one officer suffered minor injuries. Neudigate had said the officer was struck by a vehicle during the investigation.

A different officer fatally shot a man at the shooting scene. While officers were investigating the original shooting, shots were fired nearby, Neudigate said. The officer confronted the man, leading to the deadly gunfire.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave. He has been with the department for five years and is assigned to its special operations division.


We had our own "mass shooting" overnight here at a sports bar with 7 shot -

7 People Shot Outside Philadelphia Sports Bar

By Associated Press, Wire Service Content March 26, 2021, at 10:59 p.m.
U.S. News & World Report

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Seven people were wounded in a Friday night shooting in Philadelphia, police there said. Three of the wounded were in critical condition four were stable, news outlets reported. A person of interest was in custody.

The shooting took place outside Golf & Social, a three-floor sports bar in the city's riverfront Northern Liberties district. A man who answered the phone at the bar declined to comment, saying he couldn't give clear information as the shooting happened outside the venue.

The situation started as an altercation inside the bar that spilled outside, according to news outlets.

The bar, located near the Delaware River bank, is across the street from the Rivers Casino.


Sorry a little OT but it's interesting how they characterize the neighborhood where our local shooting took place - some, including the Philly Inquirer and CBS3 claiming it was in "Fishtown" and others including AP and 6ABC are claiming it is "Northern Liberties". They have been gentrifying both neighborhoods, although Northern Liberties, which is just north of "Olde City", is further along in that endeavor, so it looks like some "political" shifting going on regarding where it "occurred".

And LOL - just found this that might be part of the "problem" - https://www.phillyvoice.com/maps-make-you-wonder-what-fishtown/

(the green is generally where Northern Liberties is just north of the Ben Franklin bridge and the red is generally where Fishtown is... sortof )
