Newport News Police investigating fatal shooting on Forrest Drive

Police say 45-year-old Anthony Parker was shot and killed this morning at an apartment complex on Forrest Drive.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVEC) -- Newport News Police say 45-year-old Anthony Leon was shot to death on Monday morning at an apartment complex.

"When I got home I saw the cops and the caution tape and I got really worried and nervous," said neighbor Manny Garcia. 

The apartment complex is located in the 800 block of Forrest Drive. The shooting happened right next to a playground.

Parent Samantha Brooks explained, "I'm not sure I want to take them to the playground after something like that."

Jamie Bastas with the Newport News Police Department says dispatchers received a call just before 8:45 a.m. in reference to a fight. The call was then upgraded to a shooting.

"I didn't hear anything. I can pretty much see the office from my apartment. I didn't hear a sound," Brooks explained.

No suspect information has been made available and the investigation is ongoing. If you have information that could help investigators, call 1-888- LOCK-U-UP.
