A Suspicious Person Case Results in Death Investigation

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

On August 27, 2017 just after 9PM, officers were called to the 100 Block of Kentucky Ave. for a suspicious male banging on the doors of several residences in that area. 

Officers arrived on scene and determined that the subject was suffering from a possible medical crisis, to include a visible head injury.  Due to the subject's actions, officers were forced to restrain him so he could receive medical evaluation and treatment.  A minor struggle ensued during this time.

The subject was transported and admitted to a local hospital for unknown medical conditions.  He passed away earlier this afternoon.  The cause of death is under investigation by the Department of Forensic Services Office of Medical Examiner and the Virginia Beach Police Department. 

There are no additional details available at this time, as this is an active investigation.

The subject's identity is being withheld at this time as this is part of the on-going investigation. Further information will be made available as it is received.
