NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia State Police are investigating two separate shootings that took place on local interstates early Monday morning. One of them was fatal.

Police say the first happened around 12:30 a.m. on I-264 East near the Broad Creek Bridge in Norfolk. A 23-year-old passenger inside a black BMW sedan died after their vehicle was fired on from another vehicle. The driver wasn’t injured, police say.

That stretch of interstate was closed for a period of time Monday morning for the investigation.

Around the same time, police say they responded to another shooting call on an undetermined interstate. A Virginia Beach man in a black Acura was fired upon. The man had an injured leg and drove to his home in Virginia Beach, police say.
