Two Virginia Beach teens charged with six shootings, two murders

Two Virginia Beach teenagers have been charged with murder after police say they committed six shootings in nine days.

The shootings include Nov. 29 on Skylard Drive, Nov. 30 on Old Clubhouse Road, Dec. 2 on Hawk Road, Dec. 4 on Campion Court, Dec. 7 on Dunnbury Court and Dec. 7 on Old Clubhouse Road.

The Hawk Road and Campion Court shootings resulted in deaths of victims, according to a Monday release from the Virginia Beach Police Department.

A Saturday news release from the Virginia Beach Police Department originally implicated the two 17-year-olds in a Dec. 2 shooting on Dory Drive. On Monday the police department said they cannot currently connect the teens to that shooting.

The teenagers were arrested on Dec. 10. Police aren’t releasing their names or photographs because they are juveniles.

One of the teens is charged with first-degree murder, four counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and three counts of malicious wounding. The other is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

A map provided by the Virginia Beach Police Department shows the locations of shootings that happened between Nov. 29 and Dec. 7. Two 17-year-olds are charged with the shootings, two of which resulted in the death of victims.
