The triple shooting happened just over a week after a chaotic series of events in Virginia Beach that left two people dead and eight injured.

On March 26, a Virginia Beach police officer shot and killed 25-year-old Donovon Lynch, a cousin of singer Pharrell Williams.

Police said the officer, who has yet to be identified, and another officer told homicide detectives that Lynch had a handgun when he was shot.
