NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened near Wayne Creek Monday afternoon. 

According to a tweet from the department, the shooting took place at a home in the 7000 block of Suburban Arch. That's near Thole Street and Tidewater Drive.

The call came in at 12:40 p.m., and when police arrived, they found a man who was had been seriously hurt in a shooting. Medics pronounced him dead before he could be taken to a hospital.

Police also found a woman who had been hurt, but she is expected to live, according to the tweet. 

On August 16, Norfolk police identified the man as Bobby K. Lee, 69. According to a news release, he shot the woman before shooting himself. 

“Tragic, tragic event to a very loving couple," said Norfolk resident Richard Drumwright. 

Drumwright said he knows the people living in the home as a neighbor and friends.

“Lovely, giving neighbors. They always asked if you want some of their pears. If I went out of town, they watched the house and if they went out of town, I watched their house. Just nice people," said Drumwright. 

Many neighbors want to know more about what happened and are now concerned about safety in the neighborhood.

“We got one guy in the neighborhood getting ready to give cameras to everybody, buying cameras for everybody in the neighborhood, so we can put them up in all the houses, so we can keep an on what’s going on at all times," said Norfolk resident Brian Simpson. 

But Drumwright said he hopes police will have more answers to help them find closure in their neighborhood.

“Pray for the family, pray for the son and daughter and other members of the family," said Drumwright. 

The department said they are not looking for any suspects right now.
