VA - Ofc. Brian Jones, 35, & Mark Rodriguez, 17, fatally shot, Norfolk, 30 May 2014
Boy, 17, is fatally shot on his way home from high school graduation in a 'random' shooting spree that also killed one officer, 35, and the suspected shooter, 29
A 17-year old boy who was on his way home from high School graduation was shot and killed in what appeared to be a random shooting spree in Norfolk, Virginia that later prompted death of a police officer and the suspected shooter.
Mark Rodriguez, 17, was shot by at least one bullet as he sat inside his vehicle at 11 p.m. on Friday after shooter James Brown, 29, started shooting from his Jeep on Chesapeake Boulevard in a 'random' spree.
Officers the located Brown's home at the 7400 block of Wellington Road after recognizing his vehicle.
Terrible crime right there. I wonder if this could be a copycat of the Isle Vista Massacre.

The Virginian-Pilot said Brown was convicted of an assault on a police officer in 2010. In June 2011 the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and he was sentenced to one year in prison. In July 2012 he was convicted of carrying a loaded weapon and received a one year suspended sentence.
bbm, He shouldn't have been out of prison. jmo
