NORFOLK, Va. — A 10-year-old girl and her mother are dead after police said a man shot them both before turning the gun on himself.
Police said this happened at around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Hours later, around 9:30 a.m., crime scene tape still surrounded the home where it happened at the intersection of Capitol Avenue and West Balview Avenue.
Police said the shooting was domestic-related.
A neighbor who lives across the street, but did not want to appear on camera, said she knows the family who lives here and saw them last night.
Police identified the shooter as 35-year-old Nathan L. White II.
A 10-year-old girl, who police didn't name, died on the scene.
The 10-year-old's 30-year-old mother, Lorin E. Mack, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. She died from her injuries Tuesday.
Police said that this incident is believed to have been a murder/suicide and that they think White shot the woman and the child before turning the gun on himself. They said they’re not looking for any additional suspects.
This was one of six separate shooting incidents that took place within 24 hours in Hampton Roads.
