NORFOLK, Va. — UPDATE: On the heels of a violent summer in Hampton Roads, another shooting in Norfolk claimed someone’s life Saturday afternoon.
According to Norfolk Police, it was 21-year-old Ivan T. Blow who was killed.
It happened near the corner of Madison and Corprew Avenues. This is a neighborhood near the East Brambleton exit off I-264.
Concerned community activists and members returned to the area Saturday, more than two months after a previous crime in the area. On July 2, four children—ages six to 16—were shot in the neighborhood. They all survived, but the pain in this community remains.
Again, people called for peace, unity and change.
"We, as a Stop the Violence Team, we've got a lot of work to do," said Bilal Muhammad. "Let us embrace. Let us support the family who lost their loved one, and then let us come together [and] see what we can do to reduce this type of crime taking place in the community."
After the quadruple shooting in July, Muhammad helped lead an outreach event in the neighborhood.
Before learning about Saturday's shooting, Muhammad told 13News Now another event has been in the works for late October.
"We're reaching out to the residents, people in the neighborhoods, other organizations. Let us band together for this event," said Muhammad.
James Washington, also with Stop the Violence Team, is hopeful change in this community will come.
"We've got to come together. We've got to stand, work together with our officials," said Washington.
Norfolk police are still investigating what led up to the homicide. No word yet on a suspect.
