NORFOLK, Va. - Police are still looking for answers and suspect information after three young adult men were injured in a shooting on Sunday.

Just after 1 a.m. on Sunday morning, Norfolk Police responded to the 800 block of W. 42nd Street after someone called 911 and said they heard gunshots.

When officers arrived, they found a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.

While police were at the scene of the shooting, two more men, ages 20 and 21, showed up at the hospital with gunshot wounds.

All three victims have non-life threatening injuries, but police believe they were all shot in the same location.

The shooting happened very close to the Old Dominion University campus. Students told News 3 they got an email sent to their school accounts warning of the shooting.

Both Norfolk Police and a spokesperson for ODU say there is no indication that the victims are students. Neighbors are telling us last weekend was homecoming so there was a lot more foot traffic in the area.

A man who lives at the corner of W. 42nd St. and Killam Ave said his car was hit by a bullet and it caused a flat tire as well as a hole in the gas tank.

Police are still looking for the shooter or shooters in this case and ask anyone with information to call the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
