NORFOLK, Va. - Virginia State Police was called to investigate an interstate shooting that occurred early Tuesday morning.

According to authorities, the shooting took place at approximately 2:46 a.m. on Interstate 264, westbound near Brambleton Avenue in Norfolk.

The investigation is ongoing.

Virginia State Police is reaching out to the community for any witnesses driving between the area of Interstate 264 in the vicinity of Brambleton Avenue prior to, or after the incident, who may have possible information.

Anyone with information about this shooting and/or witnessed suspicious behavior is encouraged by authorities to contact the Virginia State Police at #(757)424-6800 or at questions@vsp.virginia.gov.

"Each of these shootings are investigated on their own, unique merits. Each one is treated equally by our special agents and are aggressively and actively pursued until solved," the Virginia State Police said. "We want to solve these cases for the victims. We want the public to know we take these shootings very seriously and the Virginia State Police is committed to making our interstates as safe as possible...and we will keep pursuing these cases until an arrest is made.

"Unfortunately we do not have more troopers on the roadway. As seen with the local agencies, we too are also experiencing a shortage of manpower, and difficulty in recruiting for the law enforcement position."

The News 3 Investigate team put together a timeline of interstate shootings that have taken place in Hampton Roads since November 2021. This shooting marks the eighth since then and the second in July 2022.
