Monday, September 25, 2017

​On September 24, 2017 at 11:58 p.m.​ Virginia Beach Police Officers responded to a dispute call in the 2300 block of W. Great Neck Road. 

 Officers located a single vehicle, with one adult male occupant who was threatening to harm himself.  It was also discovered that the individual had the means to do so.

The individual refused to surrender himself at which time the situation became a barricaded subject.

Virginia Beach Special Operations SWAT team responded and was able to establish communications with the individual,  attempting to resolve the situation.  A reverse 911 call was placed to nearby residents that were affected.

After 10 hours of negotiations, communications broke down with the individual at which time he decided to take his own life.

We will not be releasing the decedent's name.
