The Virginia Beach Police Department reported on Sunday that two people - one man and one woman - were killed and at least another eight were injured in multiple shooting events on 20th street Friday night.
As officers attempted to control the scene, additional shots were heard in the area, which resulted in police shooting one man who is now deceased as a result. 
While the identity of the deceased woman is not yet known, VBPD said in a statement that it does not believe she was "part of the original shooting."
The eight people’s injuries range from serious to life-threatening.

Police Chief Paul Neudigate said an officer was struck by a car and taken to a hospital during the department’s response at the Oceanfront. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
“What you can see is we have a very chaotic incident, a very chaotic night in the Beach,” Neudigate told local news. “Many different crime scenes,” he added. 
Local news station WAVY published video showing police taking several people into custody for questioning, but police said their involvement in the incident wasn’t completely clear at the time.
The US has seen a sharp rise in mass shootings in the past two weeks, with two shootings in Colorado and Georgia claiming the lives of 18 people.
