CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- Police say an altercation led to the fatal shooting of a man by a security guard in Chesapeake overnight.
Officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Riverwalk Parkway at 11:10 p.m. Thursday and arrived to find Jiansheng Chen, 60, shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say it was found that a security guard confronted Chen while he was sitting in his minivan at the Riverwalk club house. At some point, the two got into an altercation and the security guard shot Chen.
At this time, police have not released details regarding what led to the altercation. However, 13NewsNow obtained police radio from the night of the shooting, a person was captured over the air saying, "States that the vehicle was trespassing, and when the (inaudible) partner got out of the vehicle, the subject in the vehicle attempted to run him over."
13News Now spoke with Chen's younger brother who works at a Chesapeake Chinese restaurant. He said his brother was a good man and couldn't imagine any type of reason an argument would ensue.
"He has no behavior that anyone would have suspected would have led to his death in such violent manner," said Greg Sandler, the lawyer currenly working with the Chen family.
13News Now also spoke with a company, Associa, that is over River Walk Homeowner's Association. A spokesperson said Citywide Protection Service is is the contracted security agency in the neighborhood since 2010. A door was slammed in the face of 13News Now reporter, Steven Graves, when asking Citywide for comment.
Associa issued the following statement:
The River Walk Community Association does have a contract for unarmed roving patrol services for the common areas of the community. We are fully cooperating with authorities investigating the incident that took place just outside association property.
No charges have been filed and the case remains under investigation.
