On Monday, March 1, 1999 at approximately 3:09 am, gunfire erupted in the parking lot of Picasso’s Nightclub located in the 500 block of Newtown Road. Police responded with officers finding a man in a vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound. Paramedics transported the victim to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where he died from his wound. The State Medical Examiner’s Office determined this death a homicide.
Investigators identified the victim as Roy White; a 34 year old black male, who had left Picasso’s just prior to the shooting. He had been seen getting into a gold Infinity Sedan and began to leave the parking lot when the gunshots were reported. The Infinity was then seen driving erratic through the parking lot while striking several parked vehicles.
Roy was a 34 year old black male who had brown eyes, 5’ 9’’ tall weighing 150 pounds. He had a moustache and goatee.
