Double shooting in Norfolk leaves one dead, one injured, police say

The scene was taped off as investigators looked for evidence. A woman died, and a man is expected to be okay.

NORFOLK, Va. — Police in Norfolk were on the scene of a double shooting on Tuesday that left a woman dead and a man injured.

A tweet from the Norfolk Police Department said they received the first call about the shooting at 1:30 a.m. 

They responded to the scene, which was in the 900 block of E. Virginia Beach Blvd.  

They then found a woman nearby, on the 600 block of W. Brambleton Ave, who had been shot and killed. 

She's been identified as Delisha R. Taylor, 32.

A man was also found and taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for his injuries. He's expected to be okay.

This shooting happened just about 24 hours after another on Monday, in the nearby NEON District. Police said in that case, someone shot a man, but he's expected to recover.

Investigators said one of the city’s new mobile surveillance cameras caught that shooting. There are six cameras along Granby Street. 

But, Norfolk Stop the Violence leader Bilal Muhammad said he wants to see them in other places.

“If we want to reduce crime, let us put the resources where it is needed,” Muhammad said. “Not just Downtown Norfolk, let’s put it in residential communities throughout the city of Norfolk."

Muhammad said community and city leaders need to work on finding solutions to the violence, together.

“We have got to become more vigilant, we have to bring out our voice,” Muhammad said.

This is an ongoing investigation. If you know anything that could help police, call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or submit an anonymous online tip here.
