Virginia Beach, Va. – The Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office has increased their presence at the Virginia Beach Correctional Center and Virginia Beach Courthouse after police received two threatening shooting phone calls.

The threats are believed to be from the same person and are not believed to be credible.

The courthouse was not threatened, but the Sheriff’s Office has increased security in the area due its proximity to the correctional center.

Police encourage the public to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity in the area.

The calls will remain under investigation.
