CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Chesapeake Police are investigating after a man was shot Saturday night near the Cuffee Community Center.

Police officials responded to the area of Border and Windy Roads for a shooting around 8 p.m.

An adult male victim stated he and other occupants were riding in his vehicle when a vehicle with unknown male passengers began shooting at them.

According to police, the victim has non life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover.

On Sunday, News 3's Samantha German spoke to a local woman who lives three blocks away from the crime scene.

"Crazy. It's crazy to know that even in this area that it's going on. You can't escape it from anywhere," said Kathryn Hoshii.

The suspect vehicle is described as a newer model dark-colored Jeep.

Neighbors say it's time to get involved when it comes to crimes in the area, like reporting to police what they see.

"Contacting the police is very important because if we're going to take back the streets from these people, you need to get involved," Hoshii said. "If I had seen it or heard it I would, but I pray that somebody gets involved so that we can take back not only the streets here in Chesapeake but in Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, and everywhere else this is going on."

There is no other suspect description or a motive for the shooting at this time.

If anyone has information about this incident, they are asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888- LOCK-U-UP.
