HAMPTON, Va. - The Hampton Police Division announced they have arrested an 18-year-old Hampton man after a shooting in the area of Nickerson Boulevard and Bridgeport Cove left a man dead May 12.

According to police, at 2:40 a.m., Public Safety Communications received a call in reference to a fight in progress. While en route, the call was upgraded to a shooting.

When officers arrived, they found 22-year-old Cedric Bryant Carter in the roadway suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead by first responders.

In late May, Kaleb Nicol was arrested in Virginia Beach in connection with the incident.

While Nicol was originally charged with three counts of shooting into an occupied dwelling, on June 25 police announced he had also been charged with one count of murder.

The Hampton Police Division thanked the Virginia Beach Police Department for assisting in Nicol's apprehension.

On March 28, 2022, Nichol, now 20, entered an Alfred Plea in Hampton Circuit Court. This means he denies guilt in Carter's killing but acknowledges there may be enough evidence to convict him on one count of voluntary manslaughter and one count of shooting or stabbing in the commission of a felony.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 8, 2022.

Nicol remains in custody in the Hampton Roads Regional Jail.
