VBPD Arrests One in Fatal Shooting on Bryce Lane

On May 7, 2024, at 3:49 p.m., officers from the Virginia Beach Police Department (VBPD) were dispatched to the report of a shooting in the 1000 block of Bryce Ln.

Upon arrival, officers found one victim, a 16-year-old male from Virginia Beach, deceased at the scene. Responding officers and detectives worked diligently and were able to locate and arrest a suspect, also a 16-year-old male from Virginia Beach. This individual has been charged with First Degree Murder and Use of a Firearm in Commission of a Felony.

“A 16-year-old losing their life to another 16-year-old with a gun; we cannot accept this as the normal for our community, but unfortunately this is the reality.”, said Police Chief Paul Neudigate. “The abundance of unsecured firearms in homes and unlocked vehicles allows easy access to those who should not possess them. I urge parents and guardians to actively check their children’s rooms and belongings for firearms, and if found, surrender them to the appropriate authorities. Please help us be proactive in saving lives.”

If you have information about this case, please contact the VBPD Detective Bureau at 757-385-4101 or anonymously through Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP/

(Note: The charges mentioned in this press release are accusations, and the arrested individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.)
