NORFOLK, Va. — Detectives are still investigating after three men were shot last Saturday near the Wards Corner area, and one of them died.
Norfolk police got a call about a triple shooting on Saturday, Feb. 27 around 12:35 p.m. in the 500 block of Timothy Avenue. Upon arrival, they found Troquan S. Martin, 19, from Norfolk suffering from a gunshot wound.
Officers said Martin died on the scene.
Two other men, a 22-year-old and a 23-year-old were also shot but were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital to be treated for their injuries. They are expected to be okay.
Brooklyn Love, a neighbor, witnessed it.
“I seen someone sitting there smoking a cigarette, and next thing you know he’s getting shot," said Love. "Kind of like laid out on the ground and then you just see another guy on the other side still shooting and you can hear like reloading it and shooting again."
Love explained her priority after seeing the shooting was to protect her pregnant sister.
“So I went out to her room, you know crawling on the ground and stuff, and then when I went around and she was already up and standing up by the window and I’m like get down, get down, get down," said Love.
Love says she just moved into the neighborhood six months ago. Now, she wants to leave.
“We’re currently going to break this lease and go ahead and move out because that was really, it was really traumatizing," said Love.
The incident is currently under investigation and there are no further details available at this time.
“I just send my condolences to the family. That was really sad, and I just send strength to them," said Love.
