NORFOLK, Va. - Two women were taken to the hospital after being shot in Norfolk Wednesday night.

According to police, officers responded to the 7100 block of Sewells Point Road at around 6:40 p.m. for reports of a gunshot disturbance. This happened at the Tinee Giant.

When they arrived on scene, they found two women suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both women were sent to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The investigation is still ongoing.

"That corner needs to be flattened - not rebuilt, just flattened," said Jimmie Jerrald, a former Civic League president. "It breeds problems. Every time there's a shooting, it has something to do with that corner."

Jerrald added that there have been at least four shootings in the area in the past two years.

"It's really depressing," Jerrald added. "We have people scrambling just to have the little bit that they have, and then you have somebody coming from somewhere else and pushing it down and trampling over it. It's really depressing."

The City of Norfolk told News 3 they have not received formal requests to close or tear down the Tinee Giant on Sewells Point Road.
