NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Police are investigating a shooting that happened Wednesday afternoon.

By chance, 13News Now was in the neighborhood for a separate story when the shots rang out.

“That’s a shooting,” said Belinda Smith immediately after the gunfire. “Now that’s actually a shooting around that corner.”

Police say a 19-year-old man was shot around 12:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Lincoln Street, near East Brambleton Avenue and Church Street.

This is the same area where two people were shot on Tuesday night. At the scene, police said the shootings do not appear related. 

Police ask that anyone who may have information about either of these shootings call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
