NPD investigating shooting that left one dead and sent another to the hospital

When police got there, they found that 22-year-old Aaron Leach Jr. had been killed, and another man was seriously hurt. Medics took him to the hospital.

NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk Police Department is investigating after a shooting in the 1000 block of Creamer Road, the department said. That's off Chesapeake Boulevard in the Bayview neighborhood.

Police were called to the situation just after 4 p.m., and when they got there, they found that 22-year-old  Aaron Leach Jr. had been killed, and another man had to be taken to the hospital, the department said. 

The 20-year-old man who was taken to the hospital had injuries that were considered to be life-threatening. 

Norfolk Police spent several hours on Creamer Road and Chesapeake Boulevard investigating what led to the shooting.

Detectives on the scene talked to witnesses and took pictures of evidence throughout Sunday night. Evidence markers could be seen on the street. 

Some neighbors told us (off camera) they heard several gunshots near their home and they are concerned that a shooting happened in their community.

Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney Ramin Fatehi could only provide a few details.

“There is evidence. That’s what part of the police are here processing," he said. "But again for the sake of making sure the information that comes to the police comes to them from people who've seen what has happened, instead of from me, I really can’t go into any more detail than that."
