NORFOLK, Va. - A man was fatally shot in the Ocean View area Sunday evening.

According to police, a call came in around 8:30 p.m. to report a shooting near the intersection at the 2600 block of Pretty Lake Avenue.

Police say when they arrived at the scene, they found Sean Holloman suffering from gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives have not released a motive or suspect information surrounding this incident.

Several neighbors tell News 3 two cars got into a minor car accident at the intersection of 6th Bay Street and Pretty Lake Avenue. That led to an argument and then the shooting.

Neighbors came to Holloman's aid after the shooting, but he died.

Neighbors Ray and Betty Dougan heard the shooting and then called 911.

"We heard what I believe are six shots. Then, there was a pause of five to 10 seconds, and then four more shots," said Ray.

Other neighbors tell News 3 the other car involved left before police got to the scene.

"I grew up in Norfolk. It wasn't like this when I was a kid, but it's everywhere now," said Betty.

Despite the incident, neighbors tell News 3 they feel safe in the area.

"It's very sad to hear. You never want to hear anything like that, but it does go on, unfortunately," another neighbor told us off camera.

This section of Ocean View has transformed a lot in the past decade.

"It continued to. We think it's going to be even better, but every now and then, you're going to have something like this happen," said Ray.
