An eyewitness to the death of reporter Sierra Jenkins, 25, claims they know what ignited the deadly shooting that claimed her life in front of a Norfolk pizzeria.
A spilled drink.
Fox News reports:
“This is another incident in which conflict resolution did not exist,” Police Chief Larry Boone said while addressing the Downtown Norfolk Civic League Monday night, according to WAVY-TV.
Police got the call about the shooting just before 2 a.m. Saturday outside Chicho’s Pizza Backstage in the downtown business district. Restaurant manager Rory Schindel said bartenders had announced last call for drinks and turned up the lights at about 1:30 a.m. An argument began outside as people started to leave, and shots rang out soon afterward.
Jenkins and Devon M. Harris, 25, were the two of five shooting victims who were killed. Another woman had a life-threatening gunshot wound, while two more men received gunshot wounds that were not life-threatening, police said in a news release.
“We don’t have any hard and fast leads right now on that individual,” Chief Boone said. “I am cautiously optimistic based on where this occurred that we will make an arrest.”
