Officers still searching for suspects after police chase runs through Virginia Beach, Norfolk

Police officers are on the lookout for a 4-door, silver Chevy in connection with the police chase in Virginia Beach and Norfolk.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A police pursuit that started early Thursday morning in Virginia Beach and then into Norfolk ended with police still looking for the suspects.

It began around 2:17 a.m. in the 1600 block of Douglas Court in Virginia Beach.

Officers were there on a call for a firearms violation after a house was shot at and the suspect left the scene, officials said.

While investigating, officers received a call from dispatch about someone breaking into vehicles near Thamesford Drive and Eddystone Drive.

That's when an officer saw a vehicle near the original scene on Douglas Court driving away.

Fred Carilo lives next to the house the suspect shot at.

"I was afraid last night," said Carilo.

Carilo has lived in the neighborhood for 26 years, and that it's usually quiet.

"This hasn't happened before," said Carilo.

Carilo said he didn't hear the gunshots, but police knocked on his door early Thursday morning to investigate the case.

Carilo said a police officer lives inside the home into which the suspect shot.

The vehicle didn't stop after the officer attempted to pull it over. A police pursuit began and ended in a neighborhood near Ballentine Boulevard in Norfolk after the officer lost track of the vehicle.

Norfolk officers went to the address where the vehicle is registered but didn't locate the suspects.

Officials said the case remains active and is under investigation by Virginia Beach's Property Crime Unit.

Dispatch said police are on the lookout for a 4-door, silver Chevy in connection with the police pursuit.
