NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — A fight at a Newport News restaurant led to one man getting stabbed while another was shot, police said.

Officers were called to the 12500 block of Warwick Boulevard shortly after 8 p.m. When they arrived, they learned two men had gotten into a fight inside the business. They exited outside, where one of the men stabbed the other.
