Officers saw a man matching the suspect description leave a home in Green Ash Court in Suffolk. Investigators positively identified the suspect, 25-year-old Tony Angelo Roundtree, while he was riding a hoverboard around the neighborhood.

Task force members arrested Roundtree on Wednesday and took him into custody. He is being held at the Norfolk City Jail.

Officers were called to the 900 block of Bainbridge Blvd. around 6:10 p.m. where they found three men inside a vehicle suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

The graphic video shows the three men listening to music, a man in the front passenger seat holding the phone. Suddenly, the phone drops to the floor of the car as what sounds like at least 30 gunshots can be heard in the background.

"Call 911," a man can be heard saying. "We need an ambulance, there's three of us shot."

A voice of another man can be heard trying to comfort a victim for about 10 minutes until paramedics arrived. The man repeatedly said, "Stay calm, stay relaxed."

He also said, "Give me your hand, I got you... Stay with me nephew. I got you... It's going to be alright, they are coming to get you."

At one point, the man seemed to address multiple victims, saying, "Everybody keep your eyes open. Keep listening to my voice."
