PORTSMOUTH, Va. — Police are investigating a double shooting that happened on Sunday night.

Around midnight officers responded to the 3100 block of High Street for a gunshot wound incident.

Two adult males suffered life-threatening gunshot wounds while attending a party in the area, according to police.

The victims were rushed to local hospitals for treatment. One of the victims, 23-year-old Teontae Clark, has died from his injuries.

Police have not released the identity or condition of the second victim.

A business owner just across the parking lot says the building where it happened is rented out for parties.

Neighbors say the facility has been used for various purposes over the years including a church.

"It’s just crazy- the gun violence- everywhere," said Darnell Wiggins, Owner of Passions Exclusive Cutz and Stylez. "But this is the first time this has happened out here, and it’s sad that somebody lost their life.”

Detectives say they have discovered that there may be other gunshot wound victims who have not come forward and may have pertinent information to the investigation.
