Wave of violence in Downtown Norfolk impacts patrons, business owners

This weekend marks the third round of ramped-up patrols downtown.

NORFOLK, Va. — Stepped-up security in the downtown area comes after five people were shot outside Chicho’s Pizza Backstage on Granby Street last month. Two died and three others were hurt. 

The increased presence seemingly did not stop another shooting inside MacArthur Center Mall last weekend. One man died and two people were injured.

“Maybe I need to relocate or maybe even work from home a bit more,” said Rael McDonald, who has an office near Granby Street.

Rain and chilly weather on Friday night was not the only thing that kept some people away from Downtown Norfolk.
