CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Chesapeake Police say a man is dead after a home invasion that ended in a shooting Tuesday.

Around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday night, police got a call about a shooting in the 500 block of Wingfield Ave.

Officers arrived at the scene to find a man suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with life-threatening injuries where he later died.

A preliminary investigation reveals the victim and another adult were in their home in the 2800 block of Arlington Drive when three people forced their way inside and stole several items.

The victim followed the suspects from his house to their vehicle in an attempt to retrieve some of the items. That's when one of the suspects took out a handgun and shot the victim, hitting him multiple times.

News 3 spoke with a neighbor, who said he talked to the victim briefly and called 911.

"It was kind of like a pop pop, pop, pop, pop. Four or seven, something around there," said the neighbor.

He said he saw the car peeling off and his neighbor collapsing.

A suspect has been taken into custody, but police are not releasing any names since the investigation is still ongoing.
