Triple shooting leaves 2 dead, 1 injured

UPDATE Jan. 2: Police have identified the two men who were shot to death as 31-year-old Christopher Jerome Bailey, of Norfolk and 30-year-old Feraud Lloyd Beard of Virginia​ Beach.


VIRGINIA BEACH – Very few details are being released about a triple shooting here Sunday night that left two men dead and another hospitalized.

Police said officers were sent to the 1000 block of Coach Circle at around 8:37 p.m. after dispatchers received “multiple 911 calls” of multiple gunshots in the area.

There, officers found “two deceased adult males.” A third man was taken to the hospital with what police described as “life-threatening injuries.”

Police did not immediately provide any suspect information. They also did not elaborate whether there are multiple suspects, or if authorities are looking for them, citing an open investigation.

Authorities, however, are asking anyone who may have information about the incident to call Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 888-LOCK-U-UP.
