Norfolk Sheriff's Deputy involved in shooting in Norfolk, one man dead

Police said a man was pronounced dead at the scene. Another man has a non-life-threatening injury.

NORFOLK, Va. — A man is dead and Norfolk Sheriff's Office deputy is injured after a Norfolk shooting Wednesday night.

“Sounded like very loud firecrackers right at your doorstep," a neighbor who wished to remain anonymous told 13News Now. 

According to a tweet from the Norfolk Police Dept., the incident took place in the 8000 block of Glade Road just before 9:45 p.m.

Police said a man was pronounced dead at the scene by investigators. A news release from the Norfolk Sheriff's Office later announced that the man who survived was an off-duty deputy. 

A spokesperson from the sheriff's office said the deputy was shot in the face during the exchange; however, he is said to be in stable condition.

Bullets from the exchange of gunfire pierced the nearby home of Jennilyn Hangka.

“I heard the gunshots four or five times, then I saw a shot at my wall, and that’s my dad's window where he sleeps," she said. 

Virginia State Police will be investigating the incident.
