Upon their arrival, they found no one suffering from gunshot wounds. Investigations reveal that the suspect had a dispute with a family member and had made some kind of threats. A family friend became involved in the dispute and the suspect fired his handgun in the direction of the victim, Edwin McNair. The victim was not harmed and the suspect fled the scene in a black Chevrolet Cavalier. The suspect was located within minutes and police placed him into custody. A Norfolk Sheriff's Deputy, Dennis L. Gregory, 30 was charged with Threatening Bodily Harm and Discharging a Firearm in Public.
