NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk Police are investigating a shooting that took place Saturday evening.

According to officials, a call came in around 9:25 p.m., for a shooting in the 500 block of Nicholson Street of the Young Terrace community.

Three women were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries, one with life-threatening injuries and two with minor injuries.

Norfolk Police provided an update on the status of the women's injuries.

The woman that sustained a life-threatening gunshot wound is now in stable condition. The other two women that sustained non-life-threatening injuries were not shot as reported before. Police say it was determined that they received injuries from glass/shrapnel.

The community has experienced gun violence in the recent past.

Just last month, Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone used the words "mass shooting" to describe the killing of three people and the wounding of two others in the Young Terrace community.
