Police check possible Facebook Live video of shooting

NORFOLK (AP) Norfolk Police say three men have been seriously injured in a shooting — and there could be video of the incident online.

Media outlets report that officers responded Tuesday evening to a report of shots fired. As police responded, the call was upgraded to three possible gunshot victims.

Police discovered three men inside a vehicle, each with apparent gunshot wounds. All three were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with “significant injuries.”

A Facebook Live video was posted Tuesday evening showing three men sitting in a car, smoking and listening to music. About 5 ½ minutes into the video, gunshots can be heard. At least 30 are fired in a 22-second span. The camera then falls to the floor.

Police ask anyone with information to call 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
