VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A shooting on Interstate 264 that stemmed from a road rage incident led to a police pursuit, ending in a crash Tuesday afternoon.

Around 2:42 p.m., the Virginia State Police received a report of the driver of an Acura sedan shooting at a Honda station wagon on I-264 westbound, east of Witchduck Road in Virginia Beach.

Authorities say the altercation stemmed over a road rage incident in which the driver of the Acura, who State Police identified as 25-year-old Jermaine Lamar Cameron, shot at the Honda several times.

After a vehicle description was broadcasted, troopers found the suspect vehicle and tried to make a traffic stop on I-464 at Freeman Avenue in Chesapeake. State Police say Cameron refused to stop, leading to a chase.

Cameron got off the interstate at Military Highway and crashed into a swamp area at the intersection of Canal Drive and Route 17 before running away. His male passenger was detained at the scene of the crash.

With help from the Portsmouth and Chesapeake Police Departments, Cameron was found at the 2700 block of Misty Point in Chesapeake.

State Police say Cameron has warrants on file in both Chesapeake and Portsmouth. He was taken to Chesapeake General Hospital for injuries he sustained from the crash.

Cameron will then be taken to the Virginia Beach Jail and charged for the criminal offenses.
