CHESAPEAKE, Va. — A Norfolk police officer is charged in connection with the shooting death of a man in Chesapeake back in January.
Chesapeake police said 34-year-old Edmund Hoyt is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the death of 42-year-old Kelvin White. Hoyt was off duty when he shot and killed White.
The shooting happened on January 19, 2020, when Hoyt drove to the 2600 block of Bainbridge Boulevard after receiving a call from a family member telling him that White had threatened them with a weapon.
Hoyt -- who was off duty and not in uniform at the time -- confronted White at the home. Police say the confrontation got physical and Hoyt shot White.
Both men were armed during the fight, police said. White was rushed to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.
Hoyt turned himself into the Chesapeake City Jail on Thursday. He received no bond.
