Man arrested after shooting in Norfolk leaves one dead, one injured

When police arrived, one man was pronounced dead at the scene. Another man was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

NORFOLK, Va. — UPDATE: A 21-year-old has been arrested following a shooting that took place near the Norview area of Norfolk Sunday.

The gunfire left one man dead and sent another to the hospital.

On Monday, the Norfolk Police Department said Jose J. Gutierrez-Chavez, 21, was charged with second-degree murder, malicious wounding and two counts of use of a firearm.

At 12 p.m., police received a call that there had been a shooting on the 1300 block of Strand Street. 

When they arrived, one man was pronounced dead at the scene. He was later identified as 30-year-old Drosvin F. Escobar.

Also, a 26-year-old man was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators remained on the scene for more than six hours investigating the deadly shooting. On Monday, police said the shooting was domestic-related.

Family and neighbors were there, too, waiting for answers.

“I’ve been living on this corner for 10 years and I’ve never seen such tragedy in my whole 10 years and we are a close-knit community,” said a woman who lives near where the shooting took place. She wanted to remain anonymous. 

This shooting comes a day after community members and Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone met to discuss ways to prevent and reduce shootings.

Following the shooting, the neighbors from Strand Street are sending their message about gun violence in their city.

“Because it could be one of your relatives and my heart goes out to the family and we as a community need to come together,” said one of the neighbors.
